The critically-acclaimed sellout Edinburgh Fringe hit. Bryony Buckle is astoundingly average. Her days are filled with mind numbing office work, thinking about lunch and lusting after Orson Bloom from IT. But following a dose of hormone therapy gone wrong and a well-timed bolt of lightning, Bryony gains superhero abilities and a brand-new persona: Vulvarine, saviour of womankind.
Where is all the tampon tax going? Who is The Mansplainer, and what is his evil plan?
Grab your tights, your spanx and your most supportive sports bra. It’s hero time.
Winners of the Otherplace/Balkan Award, the Eddies Award, the VAULT festival ‘Festival Spirit’ Award and nominated for an Off West End Award, Fat Rascal Theatre has quickly become a home for new musical theatre, having written and produced 5 new musicals since its inception in 2016. It is a company run by women, discussing social and political issues through an accessible and appealing format to engage a wider audience. They believe that theatre should aim to inspire,
educate or liberate and should be available to everybody.
