LOU SANDERS Fri 24 May 2019
Gabrielle once sang ‘dreams can come true’ and that’s lovely, but nothing to do with Lou Sanders sell-out, critically acclaimed show.
Lou brings stabby step mothers, alcohol issues and an unusual sexual encounter in LA with her.
This show is all about shame. Sanders has met some pigs – and been a mucky little pig herself – and now she’s rolling around in her own filth for your delight.
