What do a measuring tape, a priest with a clamped car and a polyester frill have in common? They all mean something to Emily.

Follow Emily Souter Johnson on a heart-warming story of love and laughter to find out what that is. She will take you on a journey back to Dublin, back in time, to the week her father died. In her own words; “some of the most fun 5 days of her life”.

There will be sing-a-longs, stories, laughter and tears all served with a healthy dose of brandy.

“A lovely display of physical character clowning.
Fringe Review on Woolley Eyed Turtle

“With perfectly judged ham acting, Johnson and Bell individualise each of their creations by the smallest of gesture and the most overt physicality.”
