Cat Lady! Dried up spinster! Barren ghost! Frigid witch!
Kerensa Diball has decided she’s not having children. Whenever she expresses this decision, she gets curious and mixed reactions.
Poignant and celebratory, The Kick Inside attempts to understand why being childfree is fundamentally challenging to us all, Kerensa included.
Kerensa considers her mother’s desire for grandchildren, cracks open the canon of capitalism, mourns her lack of female role models and embarks on a quest to become a wild and free childless goddess.
The Kick Inside revels in the messiness of throwing away good, bad and unsolicited advice to forge your own glorious path. Expect absurd humour and bad dancing in an attempt to avoid the quiet moments where fear and loneliness creep in.
