Fortunately… with Fi and Jane: LIVE
Due to the ever evolving position with Covid-19, Fortunately's scheduled dates at Brighton Dome on 7th June and Usher Hall, Edinburgh on 21st June have been rescheduled. If you have tickets for these events, the venues will contact you directly to reissue your tickets to the new date or to issue refund if you are unable to make the rearranged date.
The live show spin-off from the podcast experience no one knew they wanted, until they got it. Broadcasters Jane Garvey and Fi Glover’s smash-hit BBC Radio 4 podcast Fortunately has something of a cult following owing to its frank, razor sharp style and wit; each week they share musings on their lives, from pet deaths and garden hose repairs, to the trouble with HRT patches. It was once described as “surprisingly successful” by a BBC middle management figure in ankle-swinging chinos.
With 238 years of broadcasting experience between them, Fi and Jane guarantee you an evening of behind-the-scenes revelations and inconsequential, but strangely compelling, chat about living some of their lives behind the microphone. The indistinguishable pair will be joined by a very special guest at each venue, and together they promise to take mid-life by its elasticated waist and give it a brisk going over with a stiff brush.
At a time of uncertainty, what you need is the wisdom and experience of two women who haven’t got a clue what’s happening either. If they can find their way to the theatre, it promises to be an evening of mildly entertaining stuff.
