Best known as Winnie McGoogan in her brother Brendan O’Carroll’s smash hit BBC sitcom & worldwide sell-out arena play Mrs. Brown’s Boys, Eilish comes into her own as she takes you on a loving journey. She reflects on an eventful life that includes a strict Catholic upbringing, two failed marriages, and coming out as a lesbian at the age of 50.
While poignant and deeply moving, it is also packed with humour. A 1950s baby, and the ninth of ten children, Eilish recalls her childhood with affection and good humour. We also get a glimpse of her discovery of orgasmic proportions via the hydraulics on a double decker bus and her discovery of sex! At one stage she was sure that there was something wrong ‘down there’ because her sex life was unfulfilling. Her realisation that she was a lesbian is also another tale to be told. Her show is a warm, witty triumph that joyously celebrates being true to yourself!
