Too Pretty To Punch - London

Event organized by Fragility

Get Directions

#var:page_name# cover

What if you woke up one morning as the opposite gender? What if that was the day you were born and you had to wait 25 years before anyone believed you?

Part spoken word/part digital comedy cabaret, join multi award nominated Edalia/Edward Day in this kickass celebration of transgender visibility and self-acceptance.

A ukulele in one hand and a mouthful of broken words, Too Pretty To Punch grapples with what it means to be human when you don’t fit in any of the boxes.

Edalia/Edward is a transgender/non-binary poet, theatre maker, animator and musician based in Swindon and Norwich.
