Framed as an Alcoholics Anonymous meeting we are welcomed into the tent and offered tea, coffee and biscuits by our wonderful hospitable host and star of the show Jess.
Once we’re all settled we begin our AA meeting and Jess begins her story about her family and how she thought she was adopted to her party days, drug and alcohol addictions and performing all over the world.
The show flows perfectly bringing together the story of Jess Love and her ancestor convict Julia Mullins through her insights into her life, family and why discovering her genealogy started her journey and helped her get her life back on track.
Jess’s raw emotional turmoil and vulnerability comes through so honestly is was very moving.
Don’t worry it’s also funny with lots of audience participation, including ‘Boozy Bingo’, some interesting facts about genetics and how some of us are more predisposed to alcoholism and addiction.
Through the use of props, videos, music, recordings, costumes and her incredible acting ability Jess Love has crafted an amazing autobiographical show where you laugh, cry, and learn. She also includes circus tricks including hoop routines, trapeze and walking across champagne bottles.
Don’t miss this incredible show where Jess captures the audience’s heart through her honest storytelling and ability to bring us along on her journey.
