THE YEAR MY VAGINA…
AMY VREEKE: The Year My Vagina Tried to Kill Me
SICK! FESTIVAL CATALYST COMMISSION
CO-COMMISSIONED WITH CONTACT
In 2016 stand-up comedian and theatre-maker Amy Vreeke was diagnosed with endometriosis. Now she relives 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.
“Bluntly honest Amy Vreeke [has] a likably down to earth personality and professional approach that would work anywhere.” – Graham Chalmers, The Harrogate Advertiser.
PRESENTED AT THE MARTIN HARRIS CENTRE AS PART OF SICK! FESTIVAL 2019 ON 02/10/19 & 03/10/19
