Purple Ostrich - Vadge of Honour

A feminist comedy lecture by Kerry Fitzgerald and Lise Aagaard Knudsen, presented by Purple Ostrich Productions in collaboration with Byline Festival. 

‘Why do people say "grow some balls"? Balls are weak and sensitive! If you wanna get tough, grow a vagina! Those things take a pounding.’ 

Purple Ostrich are hitting the stage again, this time with a comedy lecture looking at all things to do with owning and maintaining a Vagina. In this post-Brexit pro-Trump era Vaginas are taking a political-pounding- let’s address how, why and what we can do. 

Taking a comedic glance at topics such as motherhood, being child-free, the tax on women, abortion legislation and our gal Beyoncé’s latest announcement that she is carrying twins, the ladies will present this show at Byline Festival in June 2017. 

Expect another explosive dance-based opening number, recreated film scenes, more
(REAL) casting calls, (Unfortunately also REAL) breaking news reports (e.g. leather-trousers-gate), a new writing piece set in TRUMP-ton and verbatim stories.  

You will be initiated into the Family of VADGES and will learn what it really means to Always Be Prepared.
