Celia's Guide To Being A Wife

  • Old Fire Station 40 George Street Oxford, England, OX1 2AQ United Kingdom (map)

When repressed middle-class housewife Celia and husband Fred celebrated their 30th Wedding Anniversary in 2018, they found they had bought each other exactly the same hypoallergenic shower cap. It caused Celia to revaluate her life.

Celia always thought she was the perfect wife and had the perfect marriage, but in her older age she isn't too sure. Is there more to life than sitting together making a scale moddel of the Trans-Siberian Express from discarded Waitrose Community Matters tokens?

With songs, fascinating historical anecdotes, and an interpretive dance about socks.

Brand new character comedy show about marriage, hosted by Celia Jesson: the repressed, middle-class Toxburgh housewife with the tempestuously-romantic inner life. Celia is one of multi-award-winning character comedian Jo Neary's best-loved creations.

Ages 14+. In the OFS Loft. £5.

Please note: there is no step-free access to the Loft.
