Life Girl

May 23 at 8:00 pm


With original drama and music, local girl Jane Pugh reads from her ‘Robinson Crusoe’ diaries as she learns to live on her own. Has funny bits, sad bits and rude bits – but haven’t we all!?

This show hopes to answer every question you’ve ever had about living on your own without a partner or children. It is full of compassion, tragedy and comedy and explores the difference between feeling lonely and being alone.

Seven million people live on their own in this country, how did that happen? What decisions do we make to create the life we have? Jane grew up in Bollington and remembers standing in the festival marquee wearing her Bay City Rollers stripy socks. Then she moved away and forged an independent life of mishap and adventure.

Reading from her own work and using ‘Robinson Crusoe’ as her inspiration, Jane offers insights into surviving and thriving on your very own metaphorical island.
