Fi and Jane: Beside Themselves
2 December 2019 - 7:30pm
The live show spin-off from the podcast experience no one knew they wanted, until they got it. Broadcasters Jane Garvey and Fi Glover’s hit podcast Fortunately has something of a cult following owing to its frank, razor sharp style and wit; it was once described as “surprisingly successful” by a BBC middle management figure in ankle-swinging chinos.
Fi and Jane guarantee you an evening of behind-the-scenes revelations and inconsequential, but strangely compelling, chat about living some of their lives behind the microphone. If they can find their way to the theatre, it promises to be an evening of mildly entertaining stuff.
