Description

A reserved English father turned Tantric Masseur. A Muslim mother who insists on open dialogue. Roann has been caught in the middle since seven, furiously masturbating... Roann McCloskey navigates life as a post #MeToo queer, British-Algerian woman in this award-winning sell-out production that will have you laughing, crying and pondering the name you've given your genitals as you're taken on a journey of excruciating self-discovery. 'Ask her to read a train timetable and she could have her audience in stitches' (BritishTheatreGuide.info). Winner of Vault Origins Award for Outstanding New Work.
