Some wear rose-coloured glasses. She paints her whole world hot pink. But when a trip to the gyno shatters any hopes of motherhood, she's left wondering whether her pretty-in-plastic life is shiny...or suffocating.

Christie Whelan-Browne’s brand-new bubblegum pop cabaret is a dizzying array of disco hits and femme anthems that will melt your heart and make you giddy.

Life in Plastic is an ode to the resilience of women, a reclamation of bodily autonomy and a sparkly celebration of sisterhood—because girls just wanna have fundamental rights.

[An] incredible gift for comic acting.
