Period Dramas image

Have you ever wondered how people in the past dealt with their periods? If Queen Victoria* coasted through her cramps? What if period dramas really were about… periods?
Comedy, cabaret and tap collide in this hilarious one-woman show, teaching the history you never learnt at school.
Armed with glitter, blood, some history books and an arsenal of embarrassing stories, Heather’s on a mission to push through the menstrual taboo and change the way we think about bleeding. Audiences are invited to embrace themselves fully, let loose and have a "bloody" good time!
*Obviously she didn’t. It was 1837.
