A play for women who do too much and the men who love them.

Inspired by the work of Gabor Maté, Nkem Ndefo & others, this is a play for women who do too much and the men who love them. It's a reminder that it's never too late to get in touch with our deeper desires, our repressed intuition and the creative wellspring that resides in all of us... and that doing so may just save us from getting sick. The play asks why women account for 70-80% of autoimmune diseases and questions the relationship between emotions, the roles we're given in life and our mental and physical health.

We explore our attachment to old patterns and outdated mental models that, in the ragged spaces between earning money and the demanding monotony of family life, argue with the growing inner need for authenticity and self-expression. The latter are stymied at every turn by convention and social norms and we see the protagonist wrestling with her desire to break free of these constraints, in the quest for a more meaningful life - and perhaps even a saner world.
