Ovariacting: A Period Drama

Jamie Boiskin’s a menstrual activist. Wait, wait, come back! I promise it’s okay! Jamie’s on a mission: to stop men backing away from the word ‘period’. And could we chat about Endo? Informative, riotous, this cabaret fights period stigma with slut drops, tampon bullets, and a RuPaul inspired uterus.

Joined by menstrual activist protégé Rainer Pollard on piano, back-up dancers, and a lot of attitude, Jamie’s bringing the conversation about ‘women’s issues’, Endometriosis, and Polycystic Ovarian Syndrome blinking into the 21st Century. Wait, come back! We talk about Bunnings!

Join Jamie and her gang of Merry Menstruals for a bloody good cabaret about the elephant in the room.

Directed by Fiona Scott-Norman

Musical Direction by Rainer Pollard

Back-up tampons: Alice Albon, Louise Cumming.
