"'The Vagina Monologues' Wildly Reborn"
by Eleni Young for remotegoat on 28/02/16

If the Mighty Boosh and Caitlin Moran wrote ‘The Vagina Monologues,’ this would be it.

Helen Duff’s one woman comedy show on the fear, frustration and downright absurdness on trying to reach the womanly ‘holy grail’ that is ‘coming’ is hilarious, inventive and certainly very, very, creative.

It’s difficult to say what this show is like or how it runs, because it is a pure explosion and unadulterated look into Helen Duff’s mind and journey through this subject. What I can say is, there’s a hilarious sex survey (and who doesn’t want to hear about one of those?), some interesting costumes (after all, if you’re trying to come, why not become ‘come’?) and a whole lot of laughs.

Helen Duff's performance really breaks down the barriers between herself, the performer, and the audience, in her own wacky and zany way, making everyone feel welcome in her outlandish world. Be prepared for some audience participation, some unusual anecdotes and a performance that’s really in your face.

Brutally open and honest, this is a show that will surprise you, make you laugh and certainly entertain. Not sure if you can handle a show on the female orgasm? Don’t be shy, this is a performance, where if anything, you’ll learn a lot and perhaps make your significant other think twice about what they’re doing in the bedroom…or any room for that matter.
