News and Reviews for this Show

August 14, 2019    The Wee Review

Popular performer pleases packed room.

Once settled Godley launches into her familiar Glesga patter zeroing in on those in the audience who share her life experiences. She revels in recounting a time before health and safety and pesky nonsense like anxiety and allergies cluttered the social zeitgeist where ‘bairns wid be pit oot o the hoose and telt tae come back at fower.’ Said bairns could, on occasion knock the door of a neighbour and offer to take their baby for a walk in their pram.

Having effortlessly rattled through some dangerous nostalgia and an analysis of the usefulness of the menopausal woman in a combat zone she has a smart little anecdote about her dad’s time in care home. She manages to convincingly portray a man who shared her humour by pretending to be smothered by a pillow in a confusingly (for the staff) tender moment of banter. Click Here For Review
