There is limited availability of this title. Please enquire before placing your order.

A one-woman show based on the life and writings of the provocative columnist, writer and broadcaster, Julie Burchill.

Set in Burchill's barely furnished Brighton house, with its bust of Lenin and heated outdoor pool, Julie Burchill Is Away invites us to spend a little time with this notorious – and curious – figure, who has been variously described as 'the cleverest woman in Britain' (Radio Four) and 'Britain's worst mother' (Daily Mail).

Tim Fountain's play, written with the active co-operation of its subject, was first staged at Soho Theatre, London, in 2002.

'Who would want to see this play? Every freak and loser in town' Julie Burchill
