After the death of her mother Ginny made an autobiographical one act show about her relationship with death and her. This was first solo show was 65 days of Tracy the Marquis Mannequin that she took to Edinburgh in 2015. She has a particular interest in feminism, mental health and LGBTQI issues: she makes light work of heavy topics. Ginny with her interest in identity and the power of narrative uses performance to promote feminism and equality in her cabaret work, and is critical of power, and patriarchy used in society. In the solo comedy show Sunday Service Ginny was Sister Rainbow fusing comedy, clowning, puppetry and burlesque. She will also directed and produced MUM! in 2017 for the Camden fringe, London.

Ginny Evans-Pollard also performs comedy and cabaret. She includes moving-image vignettes in her performances. She transferred her eclectic humour to the stage putting on her devised self-produced one Woman show DYKonomics in 2016. This took on the ?off the wall?, imaginative, animated and confessional style, which is integral to her writing.
