Nelson resident Mary Glaisyer is old. Very old. Well 70 something, if you really want to know. And she likes telling stories. She’s always told them. It’s one her raison d’etres, (if you can have that in plural) and she has a few. Some of her stories are funny, some are downright peculiar and some are just … well just Mary, if you know what I mean. Come along for an evening of non-stop enjoyment.

Mary Glaisyer began performing standup comedy in her 70’s. She is by far the oldest beginner in the standup scene in Nelson, which has only been going about three years, mainly at the Liquid Bar in Bridge Street.

Mary was keen to try out a storytelling/standup show of her own, so Fairfield House is hosting two performances with pianist Virginia Ward playing between Mary’s “sets.”

We need YOU to be in the audience! All proceeds will be going to the Nelson Tasman Housing Trust, which “aims to increase the supply of quality, affordable, healthy homes and housing services for people/whanau in need.”
