Jemima Smallbones

A one woman Comedy Theatre show about a middle aged housewife who has come into ''new'' money through her husband's fluttering and reminisces to the audience about the frustrations of NOT ever being a lesbian... 'Think Shirley Valentine meets Birds of a Feather.'

Sara Louise Aston plays Jemima and the show was created following a meeting Sara had with some American Casting Directors who watched her perform a snippet of the show which at the time was just a 1 minute monologue titled "When I was 17".

When Sara told the Casting Directors, she had written the piece they advised her to turn the monologue into a one woman show because Sara's writing and performance style impressed them. Sara plays Jemima with a slightly innocent but deadpan tone and engages with the audience playfully and sweetly but with touch of mischievous behaviour.

Ticket types this year are Paid, Pay What You Can and Free - this is how it works: Paid: The show is fully ticketed and you pay in advance or on the door; Pay What You Can: You can choose to buy a ticket in advanced to guarantee entry and what to pay over a minimum amount OR turn up at the venue to get in for free in any space that is left; Free: The show is free entry and can be ticketed or unticketed. Watch the show, and the performer will ask for donations at the end for those that would like to contribute.
