    Hilarious, intelligent and seriously moving, Danielle Ward’s play is a no-holds-barred look at being a woman in comedy – presented by new Bristol company, Tread Softly

    Two comedians walk into a dressing room… Reunited for a charity gala at the London Palladium, estranged double act Cathy and Nell haven’t spoken for ten years. As they prepare backstage to revive their comedy sketch show based on the cult gothic movie, Whatever Happened to Baby Jane?, they realise ten years is a long time in showbiz, especially when they never resolved their acrimonious split…

    Danielle Ward is an award-winning stand-up comedian turned writer. Her writing credits include Brassic, Mongrels, Not Going Out and Idris Elba’s In The Long Run. Her TV and radio appearances include Mock The Week, Charlie Brooker’s Newswipe and The News Quiz.

    Tread Softly is a new Bristol based theatre company created to showcase passionate, heartfelt work. They describe themselves as contemporary, independent, sometimes challenging, always top-notch.

    TIME: 7.30pm
