Pain! Shame! Confusion! Or… empowering freedom and a massive relief? This explosive one-hander crushes taboos by following a woman’s journey through an abortion – featuring questionable life-modelling skills, the looming voice of Donald Trump and leg-dancing to Kate Bush.

Asking the big question: how can a choice that is so right be so hard?
