REVIEWS: Navy Knickers and Nicked TVs





‘Joan Ellis and Donna Jones produced an event that was imaginative and

full of wit and glamour but also managed to touch on profound issues – all

in all a smashing occasion.’ Victoria Orr-Ewing, President Isle of Wight Literary Festival



‘Spelling tests, smear tests, mad mums, bad boyz, navy knickers and nicked TVs? You can expect all of these things and more from these shy, retiring ladies. One is a Member of the British Empire, an award-winning poet and artist – Donna Jones.


The other is a Ventnor Fringe favourite, 5* author and broadcaster – joan Ellis. This will be quite the event. Haivng met these two furiously fabulously females, I can’t recommend strongly enough you buy a ticket to this offering of stories, spoken word, high drama and knickers.


Seriously, these are two severely interesting, talents and inspirational women. And they’re a bit of a bloody good laugh too. Go and see.’ Laura Clare Reid, Fringe Review
