Growler is an 82-year-old, drum-banging shamanic vulva. She's wise as witches, with a tongue like a lash and a heart of gold. She'll take you on an alchemical, theatrical odyssey on her quest to 'heal the past to heal the future'. Through storytelling, spoken word, song and comedy, no stone is left unturned and no one is left behind. Confronting and adorable, blazing the streets with her message to 'love the eejit out of ourselves', Growler is an inferno at which we can remember our common humanity and warm the cockles of our collective heart.
