Today's the day, babes!
Thanks to everyone in Preston who came to see Essex Girl above a pub on a cold Tuesday night. I have a bit of a break now before bringing the show back to LONDON. I'm at Battersea Arts Centre for 2 nights, 5th and 6th November. Link in bio, my babes 😘 📸 @gazcook
Another SOLD OUT show last night in Manchester! It was the first time I had performed in Manchester too so I was especially surprised 😁 Was a really fun, relaxed and easy show so thank you to the audience for coming and everyone at @edgemanchester for having me.
Last night was my very first performance in Norwich and it was a SELL OUT, BABES! Thanks to everyone who came to see the show and bought a book. I had so much fun, even if I was stressing about my voice the whole time. Thanks for sticking with me. I hope it's the first of many 😘
THIS WEEK on the #EssexGirlPlay tour we have 🥁🥁🥁 NORWICH, WEDNESDAY 9TH @norwichartscentre (Pay What You Can) MANCHESTER, SATURDAY 12TH @edgemanchester Spread the word and book a ticket, my babes. Link in bio 😘
Last night I performed Essex Girl in Essex for the very first time. It was completely sold out and I got a standing ovation. If that wasn't enough to get me emosh it was also on the stage where I performed my shows at East 15 nearly a bloody decade ago. Today I'm talking to 3rd year students about how they can make their own work after drama school. I actually think I might be doing alright 💖 Thanks to everyone who came especially my family, some of which I hadn't seen in YEARS. I laughed and I definitely cried.
First review of the tour is in & it's a lovely write-up from @leedsliving 'a hilarious, raw and sometimes poignant insight which will stay long in the memory...I can't reccommend this show highly enough.' That'll do for me, babes😘 Next stop, Southend!
Look who just got a new friend! Been keeping this under my hat for a while but the wonderful team at @oberonbooks have published Essex Girl ready for my upcoming tour 😁 I've been struggling a lot lately with anxiety/imposter syndrome and it's been a bit of a ride but I'm so proud of this play and I can't wait to share it with as many of you as possible. You can pick up a copy at any of my UK tour dates or pre-order online through my website and I will send you a signed copy out next week (if you want it signed. I'm not Beyoncé).👑🐝 https://mariaferg.bigcartel.com/product/essex-girl-signed-book Cover by @suzi_corker
We took a little trip to the seaside this weekend to celebrate 2 years officially together and 1 year until we're officially MARRIED. The count down is on ⏱👰🤵
