From this weekend, billed at the Coventry Assembly Festival Gardens, Frankie Foxstone will grace our city with her sassy, savvy, and perfectly unforgettable Walking Tour. Uproarious, cutting-edge, and interactive – this is one not to be missed.
Described as the granddaughter of Margaret Thatcher, the godless daughter of Boris Johnson, and the lost twin of Ivanka Trump, property developer extraordinaire Frankie Foxstone is the darling of neoliberalism. As one audience member put it: “she’s what happens when you tell your kids they can do anything.”
International theatre-maker, Amy Gwilliam, has tailored this show specifically for the festival and location, and with whip-smart ad-libbing for each audience, this is a distinguished, dishevelling experience like nothing else at this year’s Coventry Assembly Festival.
Gwilliam comes from the womb of BAFTA winning Comedy Director, Liddy Oldroyd. She was teething on the set of Not the Nine O’Clock News, potty trained on the set of Spitting Image, had her television debut aged 4 as Julian Clary’s fantasy daughter, and played the drug-dealing best friend of Tony Blair’s daughter in Drop The Dead Donkey. (Aged 13, Amy was totally unprepared for the role!) Liddy died shortly after and though Amy never intended to continue in her mother’s vein, it’s clearly a family business. The breast milk of satire was strong.
If you are interested in further performances, Amy Gwilliam will also be curating and performing in ExperTeaZE, her raucous, topical all-female comedy cabaret on the 27th and 28th August at 9.10pm and presenting her one-woman solo MUMMY from the 10th to 12th September at 5.40pm, both at the Piccolo in Coventry Assembly Festival Garden.
