What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/The Formidable Lizzie Boone

What do you get when you combine a wedding ring, burlesque and Pacman?

Well, if you’re Lizzie Boone, you might get therapy…

From the multi-award winning Selina Helliwell, ‘The Formidable Lizzie Boone’ will pull you into Lizzie’s world for a night of drama, healing and dark humour.


Centred around a therapist’s office, this one-woman show explores the intricacies of humanity through a woman who loves vodka with lemonade and a cat called Lionel.


With lively voice-overs and a burlesque dance sequence, this play is bursting with soul and humanity.


Trigger Warning: Contains references to mental health/breakdowns and sexual assault.


So join Lizzie Boone this May for a night of drama, dark comedy and maybe a nipple tassel or two…
