BY rOSA HESMONDHALGH
Rosa is writing her resolutions. This is her year. She is going to stop going out with plonkers, start doing yoga and write some really good art. But before she’s had time to delete her dating apps and get into downward dog, she’s diagnosed with ovarian cancer. Suddenly faced with hospitals, chemotherapy and her own mortality, Rosa’s new goal for the year ahead is to survive it.
Based on her own blog, Rosa Hesmondhalgh’s play ‘Madame Ovary’ is a life-affirming monologue exploring the typical struggles of a twenty-something-year-old to stay relevant, with the less typical struggles of trying to stay alive.”Talk of cancer, death, a bit of swearing, panic attacks.
“Devastating and beautiful and true” Caitlin Moran
“You’d have to be ossified not to be moved” Lyn Gardner
“Moving, uplifting, funny, cheeky and glorious.” Rebecca Front
