Hatty Ashdown: The Worry Drawer

Hatty Ashdown: The Worry Drawer

Show type: Edinburgh Fringe 2022

Starring: Hatty Ashdown

'Wonderfully inventive, consistently funny' (Time Out). 'Innately funny' (Chortle.co.uk). Holding the neighbourhood’s worries in her Worry Drawer, Hatty’s mum, Pat, was the heart of her working-class community. Following her mum’s death, a grieving Hatty (Funny Mummies podcast, Comedy Central) searched for the Worry Drawer hoping it would reveal the secrets to dealing with life’s anxieties. This charmingly funny dedication to her mum sees Hatty ask: is there a single solution to every type of worry? Did the Worry Drawer actually exist? And did Pat Ashdown have the answers to a worry-free life all along?
