After a sold-out world premiere last year, Gina Moxley’s ‘experimental extravaganza’ is going to this year’s Edinburgh Fringe.
Inspired by the 1965 films Three Approaches To Psychotherapy (The Gloria films), this provocative and upfront meditation on therapy and female desire, in a new political context where misogyny is the winning ticket, is a mash-up of re-enactment, real footage, lived experience and a punk gig.
An experimental extravaganza featuring ‘the bawdiest performance of the year’, The Patient Gloria is ‘very funny, very explicit and very sobering’. And therapeutic. It’s very therapeutic.
#ThePatientGloria at the Edinburgh Fringe is supported by Culture Ireland.
WINNER – 2019 Scotsman Fringe First Award
