A Daring Hare/Grace Dickson Production
1795. Liberty Whitley, a maidservant sentenced to hang for murder, ‘pleads the belly’ to gain a reprieve. BUT she isn’t pregnant. So... how is a virgin maid, banged up in the women’s ward of Newgate Prison, going to get herself ‘with child’? After its five-star sell-out run at VAULT Festival 2020, Belly Up provides the startling answer to this question.
A “jam-packed historical comedy full of unexpected twists” (The Stage), Belly Up is coming to the Turbine Theatre this September. Hailed an “extraordinarily funny and ingeniously written drama” (*****Spy in the Stalls), Belly Up combines quick-fire comedy, captivating original music and provocative political insights.
