Rachael spends her days dodging suffocating visions of nuclear families in show homes, whilst trying to ignore the impending doom that she’s running out of eggs. Inspired by autobiographical material, I, Myself & Me is a solo show about what it means to be a single woman in her 30s. It’s about loneliness, it’s about breaking free of the pressures we put on ourselves, the ones that we’ve been reminded of since birth. It’s about risking it all, it’s about bravery and it’s about just showing up.

“This is one woman’s bizarre yet touching personal view of the world which could resonate with anyone who’s ever felt under pressure of this thing we call, life.”
