I am the Edith fucking Piaf of the empty womb. Je ne regrettay fucking rien.
Jude has always known she doesn’t want kids. Her sister Susie isn’t sure if her ovaries are twingeing or if she just needs a wee.
One day, in a cafe full of ‘yummy mummies’, Jude loses the plot and kicks a pram. Then gets arrested. Then gets sent to anger management. Susie goes along for the ride and uses the opportunity to confess a secret.
This funny and touching play premiered at the Brighton Fringe Festival, before a critically acclaimed run at the Edinburgh International Festival Fringe, 2015. An unflinching look at what it means to be a modern woman, this programme text was published to coincide with a national tour in spring 2016.
Hasler's desperately funny play takes a potshot at a few sacred cows as the author explores what it means to be a modern woman. Jude and Susie initially appear as comic creations but gradually Hasler delves deeper into their history and the emerging play is both satisfying and emotionally resonant. * The Stage *
