My Body, My Life presents Bump & Grind Theatre
Tuesday 27th February 18:30 at London - Gower Street
Waterstones Gower Street and ‘My Body My Life’ - a new exhibition challenging abortion stigma, on display in the gallery from 24th February to 3rd March – are delighted to welcome Bump & Grind Theatre for a very special one night only performance of ‘Bump’.
About the Show
Lily is 23, young, free and single and waiting for her life to start, but she's hit a bump. Bump is a tale of some of the awkward encounters and nauseating moments that make up a girl’s life. Meet Lily and hear her story as she confronts her choices in the waiting room of an abortion clinic. Bump is a visceral and fast paced one-woman show exploring the journey from girl to womanhood.
Bump was originally performed at The Box, Assembly Georges Square at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2017.
