About: A Womb of One’s Own

“Grandmamie, if no-one touches my boobs before I’m 21 I’m going to explode all over the net curtains from pent-up sexual frustration!”

Babygirl is eighteen, a student, and has just discovered SEX – in spite of her strict Catholic upbringing by two crotchety old women. Having rapidly disposed of her virginity, she sets out to find something a little more satisfying. But before she can manage it, she discovers she’s Up the proverbial Duff. We follow her story as she struggles with embarrassing sexual mishaps, desperate attempts to be cool, uncertain religious beliefs and the weight of a difficult choice.

In this ambitious new dark comedy from Wonderbox, four performers bring Babygirl to life, revealing different aspects of her personality and an absurd cast of characters. A Womb of One’s Own uses humour, sensitivity and storytelling to explore the emotional roller coaster that is an unwanted pregnancy and ask why it’s still such a taboo.

Reviews

“This is a production of filthy comedy and hard-hitting politics.” Redbrick

“Both darkly comic and thought provoking: A Womb of One’s Own is a good addition to the conversation about abortion that our modern society desperately needs to have.” Culturised

“This production certainly doesn’t end at the ‘final curtain’ you will be discussing the issues raised for quite some time afterwards. Highly recommended, if you are up for the challenge.” Behind the arras

“I loved this. Skill and daring from a really promising young company.” Paul McGann (Withnail and I, Doctor Who).
