Virginia Ironside: Growing Old Disgracefully
  • Edinburgh Fringe

At 70, Virginia Ironside writes a regular agony column for the Independent and the OIdie, and her latest comic novel is Yes! I Can Manage Thank You! In her one-woman show she explains why unlimited free drugs, fun funerals, grandchildren, and sex " or, even better, no sex " make growing old the best (and funniest) time of your life. Directed by Nigel Planer, this show is funny, sensible and smart ... an absolute delight (Scotsman). Her show is really funny I urge you to see it (Arthur Smith).
