Lady Ilaria’s Drawers

Please note this is an 18+ event


In her northern village, little Ilaria lived bang in the middle. Turn right and she could ride on a lawnmower and have high tea. Turn left and she could bounce on a mattress and chew gum. It was the best of worlds, and the worst, because where did she belong? Even now that she’s a grown-up, she’s still uncertain.

This is a show about identity, dead guinea pigs, a Scottish mum prone to naked cooking, an errant Italian father, a chicken fetishist, a near-death experience, and a woman pooing in Ilaria’s cup-for-life on a bus.

Ilaria Passeri is a storyteller, writer and actress who has written for Huff Post, performed at literature festivals, featured on BBC Radio Manchester and has recently been working in a woodland yurt.

Micheál Jacob, producer, is a former creative head of mainstream comedy at BBC Television.
