MY GREATEST PERIOD EVER

Theatre / Social Change
WA
Scaled unknown
With a heart of gold, a silver tongue and a steel trap like wit, exultant folk pop wunderkind Lucy Peach recounts through music and stories how teaching high school students about periods evolved from the nuts and bolts of how to use a tampon, "good luck and have a nice life", into; 'My Greatest Period Ever'. This is the true-life reflection of how Lucy found inspiration in her own menstrual cycle to find a new way of life, unlock and amplify her creativity and produce her award-winning album. Witness the proof and a heart warming, eye-opening musical exploration into modern folklore and what it means to be or love a woman in the 21st century. There will also be capes. “I wish I had a period” a bloke, post-show, 2017 "A masterclass in creating goodwill" Libby Klysz, Independent Producer

Presented by:
Lucy Peach
