Have I Told You I’m Writing A Play About My Vagina? (Chucked Up Theatre)

By | Published on Sunday 25 August 2019

Bea’s vagina isn’t happy. Now, it takes centre stage in narrating her personal journey to sexual discovery (quite literally played by the charming Lottie Amor). Introspective and intimate, this two-hander delves into the pain and confusion faced by Bea – and her vagina – as she suffers of vaginismus. We witness the re-discovery of her body, which opens up an interesting conversation about the education of female anatomy, and her sexual experiences with men are wholly relatable, with multi-rolling adding compelling theatricality. The DJing and dance was uplifting, although some scenes lacked energy and Bea’s direct address needed a stronger connection with the audience. Overall, a promising writer delivered a well-structured play, promoting the ever-present message of self-love.

Paradise in Augustines, until 25 Aug.
