Jessica Fostekew: The Silence of the Nans
Show Start: 7.30pm
Age Limit: Recommended 14+
Ticket Prices: £7 (£6 concs)
After a smash hit season with ‘The Silence of the Nans’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe,
Jessica Fostekew takes it on tour around the UK next Spring!
(Read in film-trailer voice): Last summer Jessica did two reasonably significant things. One, a
story of pure joy. The other, a tale of entrapment, torment and gelato. This show tells the
second story. The horrid one.
This is an epic comedy-horror- story about a disaster at sea from which there was no escape.
(Normal voice): Jessica co-hosts the mighty Guilty Feminist podcast which has reached over
10 million listeners. She starred in this year’s hugely acclaimed BBC1 drama Three Girls and
is set to start in Sharon Horgan and Graham Linehan’s new BBC sitcom Motherland. Jess also
hosts BBCR4 Extra’s Comedy Club and BBC Radio Comedy Awards (Radio2, R4Extra). Jess
writes for BBC R4’s News Quiz and C4’s 8 out of 10 cats amongst other things.

tell you” ***** DarkChat
