Clare Summerskill - 2011 UK tour - Well That Explains It!

Let’s talk about Sex! Sexual Orientation! Being single, being married, being Gay, Bi, Lesbian, Queer, Straight and those who just see themselves as a little bit on the wonky side…

Everything you’ve ever wanted to know about all these matters but were too afraid to ask …in case someone gave you a funny look!

All is finally explained and revealed by lesbian actress/singer/stand-up, CLARE SUMMERSKILL who in this new show will take you through a fast-moving, song-singing, side-splitting, costume-changing evening of comedy and music.

Praise from audience members for Clare's new show:

“Brilliant observational comedy.”
“I’ve been to all of Clare’s shows since 2003, and loved them all, but this is an absolute cracker – the best so far! The LGBT history segments are inspired.”
"What a perfect way Clare has of telling our history in a way that both entertains and educates. Fabulous!"
"If you haven't met Clare Summerskill's timeless classic character, Ange, now's the time in this hilarious show."
“Pathos and side-slapping humour in one great package. Loved it!”

It’s a one night stand you’ll never forget!
