Keeley’s performance is simply impeccable, taking us with her every step of the Keeley’s first professional writing for theatre, the production is mature and well-scripted. The direction by Samantha Robinson is clear and incisive, while the simple set is used to great advantage. A powerful polemic over the male gaze and sexism in our society. (4.5 stars)

‘A fearless performance; Lane is unafraid to shine a light on many issues that are easy to shy away from for fear of making others uncomfortable.’

Me, Mum And The Patriarchy' is a powerful one-woman show which takes the audience on a roller-coaster journey, moving seamlessly between heavy drama and comedy.’
