Written & Performed by Debbie Baisden
Directed by Chris Head.
Starring Dolly Slatemen.
A cross between Bet Lynch and Kat Slater, Dolly puts the perry into peri menopause with a hilarious tour de force of acting skills as she calls on her alter egos, Judge Mental and Doctor Meena Pause. To demystify the change and leave the audience flushed. Add in some journaling, poetry, artwork and singalongs and you have a night to remember. If the brain fog doesn’t hit…In this comical one woman show, real-life Essex pub landlady, Baisden uses her own experiences in pub life, menopause and stand-up to create a world through the newfound arty experiences of Dolly. Life imitating art or vice versa, you decide. Currently touring Essex, the show has been sold out in most theatres. Having also been well received at UNISON, Westminster Council and various venues in the Southeast, to deliver accessible menopause education with a mix of stand-up and theatre. Dolly enforces the fact that no matter their class, all women will go through menopause at some stage of their life. As an independent performer Baisden is determined to empower others in pursuing their ambitions, with a focus on working class representation and female health. Menopause Party will have you laughing and learning.
