Gillian English has farted herself awake in a strangers bed, taken a pregnancy test in a food court bathroom, and watched her 26 year old boyfriend almost die from a heart-attack. All the ingredients to make her A Bitter Shrew.

In 2010, Gillian almost married someone she didn’t love, just because she was afraid to admit that she had made a mistake. In the six years that followed, making mistakes about love and lust have been the only constants in an otherwise uncertain life. An endless stream of bizarre and ridiculous romantic disappointments have left the celebrated, and award winning storyteller with a brand new hour of true stories that will keep audiences on the edge of their seats and howling with laughter!

A Bitter Shrew is an hour of the most ridiculous stories about sex and dating, that couldn't possibly all happen to the same person, but they did, and she's gonna tell you ALL about it.

Catch celebrated Canadian storyteller Gillian English as she reprises this glorious show for a limited run at the Joint Bar on 30th May and the Exford Hotel on 1st June at 7.30pm.
