The mixture of humour, poignancy and raw emotion on display from Louise Wallwein in Glue is palpable. Partly due to the superlative soundscape created by Jaydev Mistry and partly due to Louise engaging her audience head-on with this tale of her growing up in care from the age of nine. Her description of the ensuing years has its highs and lows emotionally and you're skillfully drawn down the fascinating path of her life through her engaging storytelling ability.
Glue is on for one more night (Wednesday 11th May) in Space 1, part of the Contact Theatre in Manchester.
Make your way there and allow Louise Wallwein to introduce you to her Mum, Big Denise from Salford, do a bit of go-go dancing and; via the power of her wimple, meet the indomitable Sister Philomena.
With this production Louise is "having it large" and it's one not to be missed.
