DEGENERATE - Work in Progress
Being forty is like being a vampire: it’s bloody hell.
Suitable for Age 18 +
Maria Teresa Creasey isn’t dead yet; she’s just forty.
DEGENERATE is an experimental coming-of-age comedy, from someone who has already come of age.
Treading the line between storytelling and stand-up, this one-woman show explores the connection between being a woman approaching midlife and the lure of the vampire.
Surveying the desolate landscape between desirability and death, Maria (“...feisty, animated and impassioned” ★★★★★) exposes the invisibility of middle age. A rallying cry to anyone who’s felt othered, empowering them to own their narrative, laugh, dance and, most importantly, bite back. There will be blood...
