Five parties. One big mouth.
Bri's not who she used to be, so she's revisiting the five parties that changed her. A biting and heartfelt dark comedy about what it really means to be loud, this new play is a story of survival, an exploration of self-awareness and a lesson in how to throw a really good party. Sellout shows Edinburgh Festival Fringe, Pleasance Theatre "Best of Edinburgh" Season 2019.

"Jodie Irvine is one of a kind." "Unforgettable"
“A phoenix rising from the popped balloons and empty cups, Gobby is raw, triumphant and a soaring one-woman odyssey.”
North West End
"Jodie’s performance is naturalistic, her comedy timing is perfection and she is never less than captivating." "Pure genius."
Feminist Fringe Review
"The world needs more shows that shout about the powerful loud voices of women!"
Riot In The Cheap Seats
“With very few trappings to assist her, Irvine grabs and keeps her audience's attention with an absorbing performance.”
"Having experienced tears, laughter, and internal analysis, Gobby felt fantastically therapeutic. It really is a must see."
She Wolf Manchester
"The humour is relatable, and Irvine has great comic timing. But the more serious – and heartfelt – story that underlies it is really quite moving. The show’s real strength lies in the way these two elements work together – they’re actually two sides of the same coin."
