A digital comedy cabaret about gender, the media and not fitting any of the boxes.
A comedy spoken word show about gender, the media and not fitting any of the boxes, full of explosive movement, original songs and kickass video projection. Edalia Day is a banjo wielding, poetry slam winning, trans warrior, taking on the world one troll at a time.
Too Pretty To Punch is a hilarious and uplifting journey through what it means to be trans in 21st century Britain. It reminds all of us (regardless of who we are) of the power of celebrating our existence.
★★★★★ – ‘A magnificent tapestry of gender expectations…a digital masterpiece.’
★★★★★ – ‘Too Pretty to Punch is the rare queer show that I have no qualms recommending to anyone. Everyone should see this show.’
★★★★★ – ‘You come for the social commentary, which is lucid and insightful, you stay for the video-projection, which is (as promised) kickass.’
★★★★ – ‘Day’s non-confrontational but smart and independent approach to one of the most dynamic contemporary conversations feels timely and sensitive.’
