This show will be a marriage of material from the show I wrote for 2020 festivals and new material developed over this year. I will be previewing it as much as possible both online and (hopefully) in person at festivals, online shows and my own online WIPs as well as Covid safe venues I can personally organise with. I believe the show will be all the stronger for the extended development period and I have been working on it with my director for a long time already. I have had a great with Laughing Horse at previous Brighton Fringes and I'd love to come back again. UK Pun Champion 2020....

Eleanor suspects she may have intimacy issues. She always has sex on the first date and hasn’t got beyond a third date in over ten years. It’s a shame because she's really good at sex. She’s even crossed a line that many women have probably contemplated crossing on occasion but few have actually done: sex work. You know what they say... 'Choose a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life'. Conway follows up her global smash hit 'Walk of Shame' with a candid look at intimacy, shagging and crossing lines.
