Accompanying Tovey on piano is composer Ned Dixon, who plays with great energy and is a solid musical support to Tovey's voice. The two have co-written these original songs and between them there is a huge amount of talent.
Between songs, Tovey shares some anecdotal stories with us while also making pointed remarks about the society we live in, such as her commentary upon being told by a man that the feminist goal of equality is like the RSPCA only caring about sheep. The stories are well constructed and told, and along with Tovey’s easy humour, I could easily have sat there and listened to her recall these experiences for far longer.
However, it's not all jokes and jibes in this 60-minute show, as shown when Tovey dedicates a song to a friend's recent diagnosis with an eating disorder. It's a touching moment that is sung from the heart and a reminder that we all need to be kinder to ourselves.
