A Poke in the Eye
One woman. One eye. And her (sort of) blind life…
**** London Pub Theatres 1.

The debut stand up show from comic, Georgie Morrell after it’s successful Edinburgh run and transfer to Soho Theatre its off to Leicester Brighton and Hastings! Using her wit, charm and anecdotes Georgie tells the story of how she went blind but now she can see…literally!
Do your other senses really get stronger? Is it wrong to crack onto your doctor? Will I get a new eye that shoots lasers?
Recounting stories of doctors, sexual fantasies, binge drinking, (sometime all at the same time) and family dramas. We hear a unique account of what it is to face inevitable blindness with her very own brand of humour. Being disabled is her excuse to do exactly what she wants, say what she wants and live her one eyed life as she wants.

“Ultimately, A Poke in the Eye was surprisingly funny and not at all what I was expecting. I, along with the rest of the audience was thoroughly entertained. In my mind, I would have loved it to go on longer but then realised that we were dealing with someone’s disability here. I have to admit that if the worst ever happens to me, I hope I can face it with half the strength of character that Georgie showed because then I know I will survive.’-https://www.londontheatre1.com/news/149345/georgie-morrell-a-poke-in-the-eye-soho-theatre-review/
