“She’s so rude. If we weren’t anatomically attached. You know?”

 
Bea’s vagina can narrate, DJ, and dance, but she can’t have sex; Vag’s Bea refuses to hear her issues: a will they-or-wont-they odd couple that happen to be anatomically attached. Have I Told You I’m Writing A Play About My Vagina? is a fast paced two-hander following one woman’s experience of living with vaginismus, an involuntary muscle contraction of the vagina that makes penetration painful or even impossible.

A skewering and honest jumble of sexual encounters, patronising pamphlet voice-overs, and a dilation samba; the piece slowly unravels an unconventional love story for the ages. It seeks to empower those who are female-identifying to build a lasting relationship with all parts of their anatomy. Chucked Up Theatre penetrates the core of this uncomfortable topic with sensitivity, experimentation and “an unabashed sense of feminist fun”.
