Join Anne on this fabulous, informative, laugh-out-loud, trip through all things Menopause and find out what all the fuss has been about.

What is it? Why does it happen? How come it barely bothers some women and shakes others to the core? Why is it named after men? Why didn’t our mammies warn us about it? And why, oh why is so little known about this inevitable phase of lady-life?

Anne answers all these questions and more, as she brings TMI to a whole new level. Come along and find out what all the fuss has been about.

What Audiences Are Saying:
“I enjoyed it so much I went a second time and brought the husband. He had tears streaming down his face with laughter.”

“What a brilliant night. Such a laugh, funniest show ever.”

“The funniest, most honest, and real show I have ever been to!”

“I’m sitting here today still laughing away to myself… loved every minute of last night… thank you.”

“…wish I brought my mother and daughter with me!!”

“Fab night full of laughs, great for the soul.”

“Went with 10 friends tonight. Actually, have a pain in my stomach from laughing n tears ran down my face! Thank u so much for this important work.” Kathy Hayes, Irish Independent

“There is something utterly punk about Gildea’s stage energy. She captures perfectly the dilemma of Irish women of her generation… this funny and taboo-busting work blasts the lid right off.

‘Amazingly funny and really accurate menopause show – loved it!’ Dr. Deirdre Lundy, menopause specialist.

‘Anne Gildea’s show is one woman genius. Hilarious and educational in equal parts. A must see! I laughed so much my face hurt.” Loretta Dignam, Founder, Menopause Hub.

Anne Gildea is a founder member of comedy ‘super-group’ The Nualas and is a well-known comedienne and writer. Most recently, her memoir, I’ve got Cancer, What’s Your Excuse? inspired the feature film The Bright Side which premiered in cinemas last year and is now streaming on Amazon Prime. Her new show is the result of a desire to talk on stage about all things female and middle aged. Whenever Anne gets too big for her britches she phones her Mayo-Mammy in Manchester, who cuts her down to size. Thanks Mammy.
