“ a hugely entertaining piece of theatre…hilarious and touching … incredibly relatable… A must for anyone with demons (that’s everyone, right?).” -The Reviews Hub.
“Ross has a lethal timing for comedy and performs an impressive gallery of characters.” – Exeunt Magazine
“Big Bobby. Little Bobby showcases the remarkable transformational talent of Camille Lucy Ross. Teetering on the knife edge between dark comedy and tragic poignancy, Camille holds the audience with expert grip.”- Annie Ryan/ Corn Exchange Theatre Co.
‘a fascinating, absorbing and truly scary story, skilfully handled by Camille Lucy Ross and Kelly Shatter and played to the hilt by Camille, who has to be one of the most talented young performers in the country. A bizarre and intriguing comedy with real heart”– Lynne Parker/ Rough Magic Theatre Co.
Big Bobby. Little Bobby is a twisted tender comedy; a one woman tour-de-force about keeping your demons sweet.
Bobby has shared a bed with Mammy all her life. Mammy sleeps in her tights, plays games in the night and guzzles bottles under the stairs. It’s time for Bobby to get out.
Alone in the silence of Granny’s old house, Little Bobby appears, filling Bobby’s head with self loathing, filthy urges and occasionally a push in the right direction.
Bobby is tired of dealing with her bold inner-baba and Mammy’s chaos, only the thought of seeing Bernard’s big, potato head propels her from the bed and forces her to deal with her dark side.
