A comedy-theatre show starring award-winning writer Sophie Bentinck, her mum and her nan. Except her nan's dead, and mum's forgotten it all, so that just leaves her…
Following a cancelled premiere at Edinburgh Fringe 2020 and a sell-out preview run at Pleasance London, Pauline is the funny, heartbreaking story of what happens when you go digging through family secrets.
Ever read your nan's suicide note? Be prepared to witness a brutally honest and joyfully hilarious glimpse into what it has meant to be a woman in the Bentinck family as far back as 1921. Join Sophie’s journey who, against all odds, heads to Edinburgh Fringe 2022 to tell the story of the women whose shoulders she stands on.
