Rejoicing at Her Wondrous Vulva The Young Woman Applauded Herself

Ovalhouse · 09 MAY - 25 MAY

Join Brain and Clitoris on an epic journey of self-discovery through the garden of sexuality.

“With a title like that, who could possibly resist? Not me. After centuries of a dominant male gaze, Bella Heeson’s show considers the nature of the male gaze in a personal journey examining how she got to think and behave the way she did and her discovery of shame-free sensuality. Donnacadh O’ Briain, who was at the helm for Rotterdam which is currently out on tour, directs. Should be both fun and informative.”

Overview

Join us on an epic journey of self-discovery through the garden of sexuality. This is a story of self-love, encompassing shame, pride, fury and liberation. Revealed is the hidden battle between Brain and Clitoris; Appetite and Ego; shame-free sensuality and the desperate need to be ‘normal’, which everyone will recognise, regardless of gender.

Age Recommendation: 12+

Critic reviews

Intriguing autobiographical piece about female sexuality that’s overly focused on the teenage experience

The Stage

Nothing feels gratuitous in Bella Heesom’s bold and poetic play about female sexuality which ends in catharsis not climax

The Guardian

While Her Wondrous Vulva capitalises on the cultural moment, it adds little to the conversation

Exeunt

Uplifting, positive, powerful – and unapologetically feminist
