About GLUE: A one-woman show mixing monologue, spoken word, live art and a sound score, GLUE tells the true story of Louise Wallwein and her first two meetings with her birth mother, three decades after being put up for adoption.  The audience is invited to share in a very private first reunion, but also the subsequent more public second meeting.  "There I was, tipped to be one to watch after doing a show on the wings of an aeroplane a year earlier.  1999, my life was moving in the right direction--a career, a new home and a new girlfriend."  Louise grew up in care from the age of nine and shows both her fierce independence and emotional vulnerability. "Born, transferred, placed, discharged, returned..."
