“Women are each other’s human wonder bras – uplifting, supportive and making each other look bigger and better,” says Kathy Lette.
Australian born author, screenwriter, journalist, party girl and all-round bonne vivant Kathy hits the road this spring with her debut live show Girls Night Out.
Best known for her many novels including How To Kill Your Husband (and Other Handy Household Hints), Foetal Attraction, and Nip ’n’ Tuck, Kathy has decided it’s time to take centre stage to share intimate details of her varied and multi-coloured personal, social and professional life.
Girls Night Out takes the audience on a journey from puberty to menopause and beyond and everything in between, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling and much more.
Kathy first achieved success as a teenager with the novel Puberty Blues, which was made into a major film and a TV mini-series.
After several years as a newspaper columnist and TV sitcom writer in America and Australia, she’s written 12 international bestsellers in her characteristic witty voice, including Mad Cows (which was made into a film staring Joanna Lumley and Anna Friel), The Boy Who Fell to Earth, Courting Trouble, and Best Laid Plans – soon to be an eight-hour TV series.
Her novels have been published in 17 languages around the world.
Kathy appears regularly as a commentator on the BBC and Sky News. She is also an ambassador for Plan International, Ambitious about Autism and the National Autistic Society.
She lives in London and can often be found at The Savoy (where she was writer in residence) drinking a cocktail named after her.
She will be making her way to The Theatre Chipping Norton on March 16 at 7.45pm. Tickets cost £15.50. For more information or book head to chippingnortontheatre.com
