Joanne McNally: The Prosecco Express

Athenaeum Theatre

Due to a relentless ageing process, Joanne is suddenly in her late thirties with no husband, no kids, no pension and no plan. She is full of questions: if she doesn’t birth anything, who will be obligated to watch her die so she doesn’t have to do it alone? Can she start a GoFundMe page to get a golden tomb built for single people to get buried in together, or do we all just get thrown into a mass grave and covered in cat hair? When a man on a dating app identifies as ‘spiritual’, is it safe to assume he has the personality of a spoon? If you do all your drinking in the bath, can you write it off as self-care?

Joanne is on a mission to solve absolutely nothing.  The funny and insightful documentary, Baby Hater, was created, written and presented by Joanne and went on to be sold to 12 countries.  Her first one-woman show Bite Me, a show about eating disorders, was nominated for multiple awards including Best Performer, Best Production and a First Fortnight Award at the Dublin Fringe in 2016.  Joanne performed Bite Me at the Vault Festival in 2019 where she was described her as ‘hilarious and brutal.’
