THE SPY IN THE STALLS.COM

Debbie Bird is a remarkable performer and a skilled playwright.

We cry with her, we laugh with her, and, most importantly – we feel with her.

The attention to detail in the script is impressive, balanced between providing a fully credible narrative and not being bogged down in minutiae.

 

Interest is easily maintained from start to finish. This has, at least in part, to do with Bird’s storytelling skills. 

 

An encouraging and enlightening show.

THEATRE AND ARTS REVIEWS

Nothing is off-limits in this frank, open and honest heartfelt story.

 

It’s certainly about time someone gave a voice to these ladies.

 

Bird has done exactly that showing a certain generation also knows how to see the funny side of life too!

Debbie Bird reveals all of Julie's vulnerability and her forthright honesty is touching and engaging.

 

It carries a message that needs to be heard by everyone, especially those for whom older women are cougars, or irrelevant, or your mum.

Ms. Bird is a wonderfully comfortable performer. She engages with her audience, she’s warm and friendly and confiding, and then you wake up to the fact that she’s telling you things that are really intimate, really personal.

 

It’s confessional, except it’s about 50-something Julie not 50-something Debbie Bird, but it’s never uncomfortable. Frank. Oh yes, frank, but not uncomfortable.
