Good Luck to You, Leo Grande

Written by British comedian Katy Brand, this deliciously raunchy and intimate two-hander could well have been no more than a pedestal for national treasure Emma Thompson to shine (naturally she does). But her character Nancy is also the perfect trojan horse for a meaningful exploration of body-shaming, ageing and pleasure.
