Period Dramas



Heather Milsted


Jessy Roberts

production team

Have you ever wondered how people in the past dealt with their periods?

If Queen Victoria coasted* through her cramps? And what if period dramas really were about… periods?

Comedy, cabaret and tap collide in this hilarious one-woman show, teaching the history you never learnt at school. Armed with glitter, blood, some history books and an arsenal of embarrassing stories, Heather is on a mission to push through the menstrual taboo and change the way we think about bleeding.

Audiences are invited to embrace themselves fully, let loose and have a BLOODY good time!

*Obviously she didn’t. It was 1837.

Latecomers may not be admitted. Please arrive in good time for the start time of 7:45pm.
Under 18s are not permitted into the theatre for this performance. 
No re-admittance once the performance has commenced. Refunds and exchanges are not available.

Heather Milsted

Heather Milsted is a queer and neurodiverse theatre-maker who started creating work at university, where she realized that the huge gaps surrounding women’s history and the lack of female playwrights, needed addressing. She creates taboo-busting, cross-art form work that is chaotic and all-embracing, telling stories that are too often pushed to the side. She has performed throughout the UK and her writing has been staged at The Other Palace, The Pleasance, The Rosemary Branch and Redgates Theatre. Heather trained at ALRA and with the Soho Theatre Cabaret & Drag Lab. Currently receiving CREATE’s Nurturing Talent Bursary, Heather is passionate about empowering through the arts.
