What I liked

Thoughtful, comical staging and execution of a serious message. Filled with symbolic but fully fleshed out characters that answer the questions of “Why should that matter?” Oh, that’s the point! because it shouldn’t, but it does! (Trying not to give too much away). This play about the restrictions and ludicrous journies half our species take in reproductive health, isn’t one that just women will appreciate.

This is what Fringe Festival is all about! The writing overflows with a complex cocktail of comedy and frustration. The genius production uses the bones of one of the more historically debated and vital women’s rights, and sits the audience in a melting pot of laughing until they implode. A roller coaster of “holy crap that’s funny!” and “how the hell is this still a problem?”

Great work Uterine Affairs!

My overall impression

Impressed at the comedy found in a supremely frustrating world-wide condition! Great use of absurdism to help even those without a uterus scoff at the angst!
