What happens when you're branded ‘abnormal', in a world obsessed with normality? This show is Francesca's defiant, insightful and fascinating answer... Intrigued by the power that a six-letter word has over so many people, Francesca shares her own life-changing journey of growing up as ‘abnormal’, being rescued from High-School-Hell by Grange Hill, letting Ricky Gervais take the piss out of her walk in Extras and working out what to say to the BBC after being offered the role of a, ahem, vegetable.Whatever body you’re born into, it seems that most people share the universal desire to be ‘normal’. This show is for anyone who’s ever struggled to fit in, felt ‘different’ or wondered what the **** normal means? Apart from a cycle on a washing machine, of course.
In her 2010-2013 tours Francesca garnered awards and rave-reviews in Australia, South East Asia and the UK. She has played sell-out performances in Hollywood, New York, Cape Town and at the World Economic Forum, alongside Emma Thompson. "Hilarious and deeply moving... By the end of the hour, everyone is a little bit wobbly, rocking back and forth in their seats, some choking back tears at an exquisitely judged final flourish that proves she is not only one of the best performers on the circuit but also a writer of rare candour."
