After defeat, re-enchantment is necessary’, said Lola Olufemi. This thought inspires Josie Long’s brand-new show of stand-up infused with humanity, compassion and some brief political rants. The triple Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, underdog Fringe hero and delirious new mother (the first person to have two babies) returns with a show about the changes wrought by time, passion, moving to Scotland, and loving the world under – let’s face it – difficult circumstances.

In response to the current cost of living crisis, Josie has decided to set some tickets aside as Pay What You Can/discounted for people who feel unable to buy full price tickets due to financial worries. We hope this makes the show more accessible to those who want to come.
These tickets will be sold purely on an honour system – we will trust that those who do not need the discount will not use up the limited supply. We are working on very tight margins, so appreciate people’s honesty.
