Claire was the ‘South East of England Disco Dancing Champion’ in 1982. Surely, she can’t be menopausal? Jacqui’s busy looking after the grandkids and keeping an eye on her ex-partner’s mum but there’s some stuff she needs to get off her chest. Karen lives alone by the sea. She’s a survivor.
These are menopausal women – unpaid carers, up-all-nighters, emotional load bearers, school-runners and piece-pickeruppers. Join them as they find a way through the loss, despair, frustration, freedom, joy and possibility of the middle years.
Based on interviews with 50 women in Bristol experiencing menopause, this BSL-interpreted and Audio Described production is a rip-roaring exploration into one of life’s taboos.
