A hilarious and devastating tour of women's bathrooms, who is allowed in and who is kept out

From internationally acclaimed writer and one of the UK's most prominent trans voices, Travis Alabanza (Burgerz), comes the Victorian premiere of "a future classic" (Evening Standard, ★★★★) directed by Dino Dimitriadis.

Cornered into a flooding toilet cubicle and determined not to be rescued again, Rosie distracts herself with memories of bathroom encounters. Drunken heart-to-hearts by dirty sinks, friendships forged in front of crowded mirrors, and hiding together from trouble.

But with her panic rising and no help on its way, can she keep her head above water?
