Preview by Paul Nelson
GET A Life! Get a Life Coach!, by Philip Cox, will be
presented as part of the London Comedy Festival for three nights
at Wimbledon Studio Theatre.
Following her successful nationwide tour of readings from her
sell-out book, Notes on a Small Pension, Violet Sackville-Rhoad
a seventies something widow, is now a self-appointed Life Coach
or, as she prefers to be known, a Life Charabanc and is now touring
her one-person show.
She grapples with the issues of the day and puts them to bed
with humour, sincerity and a small glass of sherry.
She may be unable to recall the four-digit code for her new combination
boiler in order to run a bath, but she can share with her audience
the secrets for a successful fruitful and fulfilled life.
The show lasts for about an hour and if it doesn't exactly change
your life, it might well make you change your wind chimes.
Violet is now a self-appointed self-help expert, having been
inspired after reading Women are from Venezuela Men are From
Matlock. Warning: this show contains absolutely no nudity!
