Dame Nature is a bearded lady who has been looking after her facial furniture for as long as she can remember. And she just can’t stop combing over the past.

Once the 8th Wonder of East Anglia, in 2017, tastes have changed and bookings are thin on the ground. Now she spends her time alone practising new material, re-reading her collection of women’s mags and considering the merits of Phil Collins’ solo work.

Join her on a journey of self-discovery, as she realises the disturbing truth behind her marriage and uncovers the exploitation that has trapped her for decades.

A play for audiences who don’t like to judge a woman by her beard.

★★★★ ‘Ingenious, intimate performance’

★★★★ ‘A thought-provoking lesson for all’

★★★★ ‘darkly comic, intensely tragic… and very very hairy’
