Period Dramas

Author(s): Heather Milsted

Have you ever wondered how people in the past dealt with their periods?

If Queen Victoria coasted through her cramps? And what if period dramas really were about... periods?

Comedy, cabaret and tap collide in this one-woman show, teaching the history you never learnt at school. Armed with glitter, blood, some history books and an arsenal of embarrassing stories, Heather is on a mission to push through the menstrual taboo and change the way we think about bleeding.
