After 10 years of comedy, Thanyia was set to do her long awaited, anticipated debut hour at Edinburgh festival fringe. Everything was going to plan, until August came. A month that was forecasted to be bright and sunny, became dark and grey, and it took every bit of strength that Thanyia had, to make it through.
From running around Edinburgh, to hospital visits, all whilst being triggered by strangers who review you – Thanyia’s month was not the ‘norm’.
A show about mental strength, the female body and how awesome the NHS is in Scotland!
