"I think you like parties because you like talking. Not in a bad way, talking’s good.
If you’re talking, you’re not keeping it all in.”
Five parties. One big mouth.
Bri is not who she used to be, so she’s revisiting the five parties that changed her.
GOBBY is a one woman celebration of being a loudmouth, a playlist of awkward encounters and party paraphernalia, and a lesson in how to throw a really good party.
A darkly comic telling of survival delving into social anxiety and emotional manipulation, GOBBY is a roar for a return to real life.
Jodie Irvine’s biting and heartfelt debut play is fast and funny monologue for one female performer. It premiered at The Lion & Unicorn Theatre in June 2019 ahead of nationwide performances supported by Arts Council England. In August 2019 the show was performed at Underbelly Cowgate at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, before opening at VAULT Festival, London on February 4th 2020.
"The right mixture of humour and poignancy makes for a boisterous and heartfelt production."
Jodie has trained with prestigious comedy schools iO and The Second City in Chicago, UCB in Los Angeles and Monkey Toast in London. She is an alumnus of Soho Theatre’s Young Company, and can be found regularly performing with improvised troupe Trophy Room and at The Nursery Theatre and Hoopla Impro.
She is currently developing a number of projects for stage and screen.
