Earlier this year, Anne Gildea’s launched new show, How to Get The Menopause and Enjoy It, at the Viking Theatre, Clontarf to a rapturous response. The show has gone from strength to strength and has consistently sold to large houses since its beginning. The feedback from audiences has been phenomenal and we have had people returning to the show and bringing friends with them.
Join her on this fabulous, informative, laugh-out-loud, trip through all things Menopause. Anne brings her keen comedic skills to this topic that affects 51% of the population yet is still treated like a mystery.
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.
“Never has the female body been put under such an hilarious microscope…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. I am definitely the target audience for this show, and it spoke directly to me. But 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.”
– Katy Hayes, Irish Independent
‘Amazingly funny and really accurate menopause show – I loved it!’
-Dr. Deirdre Lundy, menopause specialist.
“Anne Gildea’s show is one woman genius. Hilarious and educational in equal parts. A must see! I laughed out loud so much my face hurt.”
– Loretta Dignam, Founder, Menopause Hub.
“This is the funniest show I’ve ever been to and so well researched, I learnt loads; some of it was even a bit shocking. Anne is so talented at what she does. 10/10” June Caldwell, writer, on Twitter.
