Feminist Fringe frenzy
Whether they're exploring the nuances of body hair, breaking down period taboos, calling out misogyny, or purely championing the talents of women, femmes and non-men, these are some of the stellar feminist and womxn-driven works FRINGE WORLD 2021 has to offer.
Presented by LadyBusiness Productions
Lazer it, tweeze it, wax it, leave it - Lady Business’ debut show exposes the sexualisation and stigmas surrounding hair, covering everything from what grows on your head, all the way down to what you wish didn’t grow on your toes!
A powerful, high-energy mix of physical theatre, poetry and storytelling, watch three women wrestle with, wax off, and wig out over their hair. Weaves will fly, ponytails will whip and braids will be let loose.

Eva DuBivoir and the Quest for the Bloody Truth
Presented by Riptide Youth Performance Company
In this unapologetically cheesy panty-mime Eva DuBivoir, a young and impressionable vagina, sets out on a quest to find out what's up with the creepy 'Tampons Inc' she works for. Along the way she meets MC Wiz who turns out to be a woke AF menstrual cup, and once together they use the power of bad jokes and teamwork to bring down Tampons Inc once and for all!
This fresh, funny, feminist, six hand contemporary theatre piece from Riptide will have you learning- as you laugh- that whether you're old or young, whether you bleed or not, menstruation liberation is the responsibility of us all!
6:30pm, 3rd-8th February, The Cookery at Girls School.
