'All things considered, your lack of boy bits is only a tiny hiccup' 2005. Chloe's great. It's Christmas, she's thirteen years old and has just woken up to a searing pain and what seems like a crustier version of the Red Sea sticking her legs together beneath the duvet. 2010. Jamie's worried. In her experience, throwing up from pain straight after sex is (thankfully) pretty damn unusual - so why does her little sister breezily chat about it like it's a perfectly normal reaction? Baby Box is a frank and darkly comic exploration of the wonderfully dysfunctional relationship between siblings, complete with all the ins and outs that come with having a vagina. Baby Box by Laura McGrady has been selected by King's Head Theatre to have its world premiere as part of their Who Runs The World? feminist season this May. This heart-warming and darkly humorous new play focusses around endometriosis, a medical condition affecting 1 of 10 women in the world, where cells similar to those lining the womb occur outside of the uterus yet keep their behaviour of shedding and bleeding. Directed by King's Head Junior Associate Helena Jackson and starring Laura McGrady and Sarah Cullum, Baby Box is a searingly relevant look at female sexual pleasure and pain.
