Anne Gidea ‘How to get the Menopause and Enjoy It!
21st October @ 9:30 pm - 11:30 pm€22
Join Anne on this fabulous, informative, laugh-out-loud, trip through all things Menopause.
What is it? Why does it happen? How come it barely bothers some women and shakes others to the core? Why is it named after men? Why didn’t our mammies warn us about it? Is there anything you can do about it? And why oh why is so little known about this inevitable phase of lady-life?
Anne answers all these questions and more, as she brings TMI to a whole new level.
“There is something utterly punk about Gildea’s stage energy. She captures perfectly the dilemma of Irish women of her generation, hobbled by the micro-oppressions of conservative Catholicism, and engaging in a lifetime of micro-battles against this force. If any young people want to know what’s really going on in their mams’ and aunties’ secret lives, this funny and taboo-busting work blasts the lid right off.
