Edinburgh Fringe 2014 Review: Rosie Wilby-Nineties Woman


15 August 2014, ThreeWeeks Edinburgh 

Former ‘Funny Women’ finalist Rosie Wilby had a plan: to interview all the women who wrote alongside her for nineties York University feminist newspaper ‘Matrix’, and the result is this intriguing show. This nineties woman takes us through the story of her student days bad perms, fruitless crushes and too sincere student demos included but what she really wants to know is whether these girls have stuck to their principles and remained true to the feminist cause. The stand out thing about the show is the former Brit-popper herself, who is a likeable figure and a natural story teller. Her tales of student (not quite) hedonism engage you from the off, and her willingness to gently self-deprecate allow the audience to happily laugh at her as well as with her.
