AMY VREEKE (UK)
SICK! FESTIVAL CATALYST COMMISSION
WED 2 OCT & THURS 3 OCT
MARTIN HARRIS CENTRE, THE UNIVERSITY OF MANCHESTER, BRIDGEFORD STREET, MANCHESTER, M13 9PL
In 2016 stand-up comedian and theatre-maker, Amy Vreeke was diagnosed with endometriosis. Now she’s here to relive twelve years of misdiagnosis, toilet-based mishaps and failed one-night stands.
Endometriosis causes the uterus lining to grow in other parts of the body, creating a wide range of painful symptoms that can affect everyday life. Through bluntly delivered jokes, captivating storytelling and a little help from the Gilmore Girls, Amy explores the taboos surrounding personal health and gives us an insight into a life with a chronic illness.
“Bluntly honest Amy Vreeke [has] a likably down to earth personality and professional approach that would work anywhere.” – Graham Chalmers, The Harrogate Advertiser.
