Virginia Ironside performs her own one-woman show, Growing OId Disgracefully. The show arose from of performing at literary festivals to publicise her book, No! I Don’t Want to Join a Book club! But now, a few years later, her new book has come out, No! I Don’t Need Reading Glasses! And she’s still on the road. In her show she explains why unlimited free drugs, fun funerals, grandchildren and sex – or, even better, no sex – make the sixties the best (and funniest) time of your life…Directed by Nigel Planer, this “grannie stand-up” premiered at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in 2009 and four years later she did another stint at Edinburgh to sell-out audiences. She’s been touring ever since.
