A Womb of One’s Own

Funny, clever and politically challenging, A Womb of One's Own follows a young woman on her journey of self and sexual discovery, exploring the emotional rollercoaster of an unwanted pregnancy, an abortion and the surrounding taboos. Supported by The Pleasance's Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve 2019, this darkly comic coming-of-age story tackles a big painful subject with warmth, heart and humour.

The production looks to widen the public discussion and shatter stigma about UK women having abortions while championing better abortion education for women and girls. It also demonstrates that abortion is not just a straight women’s issue; it affects bisexual relationships and the complexities in dealing with abortion as a queer person can be even more challenging as support and guidance is usually created for heterosexual women.
