Losing It
  • The House, Auditorium, Plymouth University

Save event

Artist: Helen Lederer
Chaired by: Judi Spiers 

Millie is an agony aunt for The Good Woman Magazine. In debt, divorced and desperate, she’s about to lose her house. Worse, she has no money, a best friend with a better sex life than her, a daughter in Papua New Guinea and too much weight in places she really doesn’t want.

A hilarious, brutally honest exploration of a woman who still feels 30 but can't deny the odd stray grey...

'’Desperately funny, desperately engaging, desperately readable and desperately adorable.’’ - Stephen Fry

‘’A brilliant creation: scene after scene of blissful agony: savagely funny and I couldn't put it down.’' - Joanna Lumley
