Lou Conran makes her Perth debut at Fringe World 2020 with her new show Maybe Baby. She tells us the tragic true story of losing her daughter five months into her pregnancy and brings light and humour to this taboo subject.
Lou opens up a conversation about her experience and puts a cheeky spin on the events leading up to the loss, all while delivering a powerfully emotive, yet hilarious show. She feels the most important thing is that the audience are encouraged to relax and have a laugh. “Baby loss is something which so many experience and we need to talk about it, to acknowledge those babies,” she says. “Comedy can make things more accessible. If you can ease people in with a laugh, you can say more. You have them listening.”
“Don’t be deterred, for she has deftly navigated a way through the sensitive subject, finding the funny” ★★★★ Chortle.
“A must see!” ★★★★ Fest Magazine
Lou is performing at the Brass Monkey Hotel in Northbridge at 5.45pm each night from 2-16 February (except 5 & 12). Tickets are available from the Fringe World website.
