Intertwined with mad musical numbers highlighting the absurdity of human behaviour under the influence of hormones. An uplifting, life-affirming, thought-provoking journey through conception, chemistry and the quest for human connection. Best Cabaret award, United Solo Festival, New York 2018. Critics Choice, All About the Solo, New York. 'Cabaret show like no other' **** ( 'Physical comedy that's as glorious as her exquisite singing voice... It's a remarkable experience' **** (Gutter Culture).
