Rosie will be recording a 15 minute talk on monogamy and polyamory and presenting some of her brand new ideas on the subject (including the 'costs' of serial monogamy, both emotional and financial, and defining a new 'currency of commitment' that celebrates 'love affair friendships') as part of a recording for Radio 4 Four Thought on July 24th at the ICA. Apply for free tickets to the recording (with 3 other speakers on different subjects) here. The broadcast will be on a Wednesday evening in late August. Exact date to follow. In the meantime, you can also listen to her recent appearance discussing lesbians and marriage on Woman's Hour (its the first item of this broadcast) and hear her take part in a marriage debate for Voice Of Russia 

Nineties Woman comes to Edinburgh Fringe - and its FREE!

Nineties Woman will appear at the rather swanky Voodoo Rooms (venue number 68 on the official Fringe map) on West Register Street from August 2nd - 24th (not 11th) at 12.05pm (just after midday not midnight!). It is part of the PBH Free Fringe so you don't even have to book. Just turn up and then if you've enjoyed it make a donation towards my Fringe costs in a bucket at the end. If you do enjoy the show please tweet @rosiewilby and let me know. I've performed at the Voodoo Rooms in the Speakeasy (downstairs) in previous years as a guest at Magic Faraway Cabaret and fell in love with the space. I hope you like it too. Here's some more reviews from Three Weeks (4 stars), The Examiner (5 stars), Rude Mag and this blog (5 stars). Further tour dates to come at Bournemouth Arts by the Sea fest and Brighton comedy fringe...
