About

"Grandmamie, if no-one touches my boobs before I'm 21 I'm going to explode all over the net curtains from pent-up sexual frustration!" Babygirl is eighteen, a student, and has just discovered SEX - in spite of her strict Catholic upbringing by two crotchety old women. Having rapidly disposed of her virginity, she sets out to find something a little more satisfying. But before she can manage it, she discovers she's Up the proverbial Duff. We follow her story as she struggles with embarrassing sexual mishaps, desperate attempts to be cool, uncertain religious beliefs and the weight of a difficult choice. In this ambitious new dark comedy from Wonderbox, four performers bring Babygirl to life, revealing different aspects of her personality and an absurd cast of characters. A Womb of One's Own uses humour, sensitivity and storytelling to explore the emotional roller coaster that is an unwanted pregnancy and ask why it's still such a taboo.
