Jo said: “It is my first show back in Bristol for more than 10 years.
“I left aged 19 to attend drama school, since then I have managed to work in Australia, across Europe, on UK tour and in the West End, but I have never worked professionally at Bristol.
“This will be a great night and a great honour for me and will hopefully go a long way to stop my grandma from pestering me about when I would come back to Bristol to do a show.”
