Millennial-female-clown rabbit Diane wants to find love but she’s having some serious problems with her contraception. She finds herself in the GUM clinic being advised to take celery as a form of “vegetation separation”. However, celery causes some bizarre and unpleasant side effects for Diane who finds that it hinders her dating and sex life significantly more than it helps… An absurd, comic and poignant exploration of the darker side of contraception through the eyes (and ears) of the inimitable Diane.
‘Claire Parry is a standout’ (TheSpyInTheStalls.com).
‘For a piece to have such a profound effect on this hardened theatre critic’s political stance, and for it to simultaneously provide such a stream of delightful belly-chuckles, it must be doing something right.’ (FringeReview.co.uk)
