Overview

It's January. Rosa, over her hangover, is writing her New Year’s resolutions. But before she's had time to delete her dating apps, she's diagnosed. With ovarian cancer. And it's spread.

WildChild Productions is a new company of theatre and film-makers dedicated to telling compelling, meaningful & imaginative stories to all generations.

Rosa grew up in West Yorkshire and moved to London at 19 to study acting at LAMDA. She began her professional acting career appearing as Belle in Hull Truck’s version of A Christmas Carol. Weeks after finishing, she was diagnosed with stage 3 ovarian cancer. She began writing a blog to update her friends and family on her treatment, which turned into a detailed telling of her story that garnered a large amount of attention on social media. Madame Ovary the one woman show will be her first full length piece of writing. Currently Rosa is working with Lidless Theatre to develop a piece about NHS workers for the Pleasance LABS. She also writes regularly for Take Back, the award winning Manchester theatre company.
