If How to Build a Girl was your 2014 must-read, then prepare to be excited. For four dates in April Moran is reprising her hilarious live show to celebrate the publication of the paperback and tickets have just gone on sale.
Across almost two hours, she’ll be exploring all the themes thrown up by the book (feminism, socialism and err, masturbation) in her trademark fast-talking style. Think part stand-up, part polemic to the glories – and horrors – of teenage girl-hood. The tour kicks off in Glasgow on 13 April, and is essentially the closest thing we can think of to spending an evening on the wine with everyone’s favourite feminist.
In case you need more convincing – but really, why would you? – a signed copy of the book is included in the price of a ticket. But if you do need an extra push, here’s Caitlin’s typically singular approach to plugging her tour.
'I've reformed the band (me) and am BACK ON THE ROAD to share the secret of how YOU can lose 5lb in just one week - by simply putting down anything that you're carrying that weighs 5lb, eg: a rucksack, dog, or rock! I'll - SHOW YOU MY CAMELTOE! GRAPHICALLY MIME MASTURBATING WHILST WATCHING SHERLOCK! Discuss THE REVOLUTION! And describe what it's like ACCIDENTALLY TRYING TO BREAK INTO KATE MOSS'S HOUSE!"
Here are the dates:
Monday 13th April – The Pavillion, Glasgow
Tuesday 14th April – the Lowry, Manchester
Wednesday 15th April – The Hackney Empire, London
Thursday 16th April – St David’s hall, Cardiff
