AUSTRALIAN born author, screenwriter, journalist, party girl and all-round bonne vivant, Kathy Lette brings her debut show Girls Night Out to the Swindon Arts Centre tonight, Friday, September 15.

Best known for her many novels including: How To Kill Your Husband: And Other Handy Household Hints, Foetal Attraction and Nip‘n’Tuck, Kathy’s decided it’s time to take centre stage for an evening with her, to share intimate details of her varied and multi coloured personal, social and professional lives.

Girls Night Out is a psychological strip tease taking us from Puberty Blues to Menopause Blues, with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toy boys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic, tongue kissing Prince William and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route.

Kathy also talks poignantly about the trials, tribulations and hilarity of raising a child on the autistic spectrum, from the times Jules came home from school with a sign sticky-taped to his back saying “Kick me I’m a retard" to his success playing Jason on Holby City.
