Eleanor Conway’s Walk of Shame

A stand-up debut about sex, sobriety and Sambuca and the modern addict that lies within us all. Naturally an18 plus age kind of event.

And is it really the end? (Yes. Yes, it is, sorry!) Mitch confronts his – and YOUR – mortality with hilarious (and tuneful) consequences.  Join him! It’s time you’re not getting back!
