Details

A messy, musical ritual - Madame Ovary meets The Devils - probing into reproductive mishaps and monstrosities.

What is it like to have your fallopian tube hacked off? Or to give birth to a 10lb cyst baby? The realm of the womb can be complex and bloody awesome…

Cyst-er Act is a new work written about Cath’s personal experience of having an ovary removed due to a large cyst that took over her entire stomach, and the discoveries of other women's womb difficulties. It uncovers lost knowledge about women's bodies and how these interior things occur through ovary blues, punk, death metal and some gospel numbers thrown in.

Joined on stage by her 'Poly-Cysters', Sarahjane Grimshaw and Amanda Radix,
expect songs, slime, speculums and stripteasing nuns – Welcome to the wonders of the womb.

Supported by Arts Council England, Metal and Ovalhouse.
