Amy Vreeke:The Year My Vagina Tried To kill Me

Date:Thu 06 Feb
Time:7:30pm
Venue:J2
Price:Pay What You Feel tickets from £2.50

This brand new show takes a frank and funny look at a life-altering disease that affects one in ten women in the UK. 

Stand-up comedian and theatre maker Amy Vreeke creates multi-genre, autobiographical work that explores social taboos with candour and comedy. Amy was diagnosed with endometriosis in 2016.

Now she’s here to relive twelve years of misdiagnosis, toilet-based mishaps and failed one-night stands. Endometriosis causes the uterus lining to grow in other parts of the body, creating a wide range of painful symptoms that can affect a woman’s everyday life. Through bluntly delivered jokes, captivating storytelling and a little help from the Gilmore Girls, Amy explores the taboos that surround women’s health and gives us an insight into a life with a chronic illness. 

“Bluntly honest Amy Vreeke who had a likably down to earth personality and professional approach that would work anywhere.” - Graham Chalmers, The Harrogate Advertiser. 

“The stories of her childhood and misspent youth… had the audience splitting with laughter… Amy is definitely one to look out for on the comedy circuit.” – Victoria Wilmot, North Westend.
