The Breakup Monologues with Rosie Wilby

Oct 4, 2019

Rosie is joined by comedian and author Katy Brand and journalist and broadcaster Miranda Sawyer to discuss how cultural influences from Dirty Dancing and Mary Poppins to James Bond books and Blondie influenced their early thoughts about love and sexuality, internet dates in the days of dial-up, how desire waxes and wanes during midlife particularly for women at perimenopause and how this can lead us to suddenly fancying someone totally inappropriate, how breakups can fuel our creativity... and a brilliant Brixton breakfast breakup story.

Recorded at Port Eliot Festival on July 28 2019. The next London live recordings are at Kings Place on Oct 11 and Nov 8. Book tickets at
