#GIRLHOOD is a nostalgic, hilarious and heartbreaking exploration of the joy and pain of growing up. It deconstructs and satirises the milestones, conventions and pressures that girls face.  It’s ultimately about finding those who will help you survive the lows, and dance in celebration with you on the highs.

“It had me wild-eyed with nostalgia about the 90s & dial-up internet, blushing at the frankness of losing virginity and squirming at the male entitlement underscoring so many sexual experiences. Nice to be on the receiving end of someone else’s brutal honesty for a change.” ★★★★★ Darren ‘Loki’ McGarvey

“A wordsmith for womankind” ★★★★ Young Perspective

“A bold and exciting performance from an excellent poet and an important voice in spoken word.” ★★★★ The Wee Review
