This event has passed.

LITTLE BOXES is a comedic and inspiring one-woman show, written by and starring Joann Condon (Little Britain, The Last Letter from your Lover, Dad’s Army: The Lost Episodes, Cradle to Grave, The Office). Laugh and cry as Joann explores the boxes she has found herself in throughout life: The hopes and dreams of a child, the frustrations of an acting career, the tensions of parenthood, the grief in losing loved ones, the fear of being… herself.

Joann uses personal anecdotes to highlight assumptions and judgements made about her based-on looks, age, gender and background. These are common experiences most of us can relate to.

“It’s natural for people in our lives to want to force us into nice little boxes,” says Condon, “but the scary thing is, after a period of time, you end up putting yourself in that same box.”

Reviews

“A joyful delve into one woman’s life, celebrating the successes, the heartbreak, and everything in between.”
The Plays the Thing

“funny, touching and at times heart-breaking”
London Pub Theatres

“Great theatre makes us think and I am particularly grateful to Little Boxes for such an inspiring piece of theatre. This is not a show to miss.”
Fairy Powered Productions

“This one woman show is a delight. By turns hilarious, moving, sad and uplifting; it takes the audience on a journey through Joann Condon’s life and memories, dreams and sorrows. The stories are intensely personal, but also universal and immensely relatable”
The Spy in the Stalls

“A naturally warm and engaging performer, Joann, who Little Britain fans may recog- nise as ‘Fat Pat’ takes us through the highs and lows of her life so far”.
Theatre Weekly

“It’s one of those plays where you go in without knowing what to expect and come out realising you have just watched something that challenges your own way of think- ing and how you look at those around you”.
Broadway Baby

“The production relies on the good old-fashioned art of storytelling, and Condon’s comic timing is impeccable”
London Theatre

“Condon promises we will laugh and cry… and laugh and cry we did”
Pheonix Remix

“The pleasure and resonance of this show come from this honesty”
