Girls Just Want to have Fun!

Comedy Theatre and Free Beauty Treats- Girls Night Out at Riverbank Arts Centre Thursday April 22nd

Wonderland Productions Presents: Life Shop Till You Drop!

Free Glass of wine and girly treats from 7pm. Show starts at 8.30pm. Tickets €15

Hilarious comedy theatre- GREAT GIRLS’ NIGHT OUT!! 

"A wickedly funny spoof of self-help consumer culture" Irish Times

Following sell-out National tours, Life Shop Till you Drop! is set to embark on its fifth nationwide tour.  Ailish McGovern is an unfulfilled Recruitment Consultant. For Ailish life would be perfect if she had a marriage proposal, a glamorous job and most importantly won Irish Tatler Woman of the Year. And so she selects 2010 as the year in which she will transform her life, by applying all of the instructions and mantras of self-help gurus.

Join Ailish, as she goes speed dating, feng shui's her 100% mortgaged  apartment and targets the perfect boyfriend, using the New York manual 'Your soul mate is out there and missing you.' Next on her hit list is taking over her boss's job using 'The work secrets only successful people know!'

A cautionary tale, or more likely, a sparkling spoof on our love of going life shopping.

**Free glass of wine with every ticket. Come to Riverbank Arts Centre from 7pm and sample an array of girly goodies presented by local businesses. From free nail painting and nail art to beauty tips and tricks and mini makeovers, come along for a night of fun and frivolity. A great night out for you and your friends. 

" Clodagh Reid plays Ailish with comic versatility generating continuous laughter… a wickedly funny spoof of self-help consumer culture, where the dream man and dream life are just one manual and mantra away. " The Irish Times

"Writer and Director Alice Coghlan's clever script and pitch perfect self help jargon are a delight.... this comic satire has plenty of laughs." The Sunday Tribune

"This one-woman farce is a fast paced parody of the self help industry, showing its star's comic range in male and female characters "  The Sunday Times
