Join Laura on a mission to serve herself up [in]appropriately for your consumption, in a bold, cinematic, acrobatic odyssey through the frontiers of mental health, queerness, rage and the 21st Century space race. Directed by Ursula Martinez, with Laura’s critical and cheeky signature mix of autobiography, lip-sync, video and aerial rope, A SPECTACLE OF HERSELF navigates the personal and political to seek out new worlds and ways to be seen.

‘a powerful and empowering piece of work’ —- (Scotsman)

‘Mesmerising!’ (Theatre Travels)

‘wildly funny and deeply touching’ —- (The Skinny)

‘a testament to the transformative power of theatre’ —– (Morning Star)
