Amy Vreeke: The Year My Vagina Tried To Kill Me
This brand new show takes a frank and funny look at a life-altering disease that affects one-in-ten women in the UK.
Stand-up comedian and theatre-maker Amy Vreeke creates multi-genre, autobiographical work that explores social taboos with candour and comedy.
Amy was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016. Now she's here to relive twelve years of misdiagnosis, toilet-based mishaps and failed one-night stands.
Endometriosis causes the uterus lining to grow in other parts of the body, creating a wide range of painful symptoms that can affect a woman's everyday life. Through bluntly delivered jokes, captivating storytelling and a little help from the Gilmore Girls, Amy explores the taboos that surround women's health and gives us an insight into a life with a chronic illness.
