This piece of gig theatre, written and performed by Cora Bissett, charts her rollercoaster journey from indie-kid hopeful in the '90s to the wised-up woman she is today.
Based on her meticulous teenage diaries, the show celebrates the euphoric highs (including touring with Radiohead and partying with Blur) and epic lows of her young life as lead singer in the tipped-for-the-top band Darlingheart, interspersed with the personal losses and gains of her adult life.
