The Virginia Monologues
Holme Street, Hebden Bridge
8.00pm to 9.00pm
While everyone around her is moaning about the
miseries of old age, Virginia Ironside, one of the
nation’s top agony aunts, finds that her sixties are the
happiest time of her life. Join her in this Edinburgh
Festival preview directed by Nigel Planer as she takes
an off-beat, touching and wry look at the pleasures of
the Third Age.
Virginia will be signing books after the performance.
The Festival would like to thank Virginia for donating
her fee to the Festival.
