Past Event

Jamie Boiskin’s a menstrual activist. Wait, wait, come back! I promise it’s okay! Fighting the good fight to make the world comfortable with talking about the bloody elephant in the room, her period. Get ready to paint the town red, and become comfortable with terms such as blood, tampons, diva cup, and raw meat.

Inspired by her uterus, Laganja, the love child of Joffrey and Donald Trump, join Jamie as she explores the monthly nightmare of losing your favourite underwear, bamboozling three gynaecologists and the joys of bleeding out for thirty five days.

Directed by Fiona Scott Norman
Music direction by Rainer Pollard

With Alice Albon and Louise Cumming
