I’m a Phoenix, Bitch

Date: 24 Dec 2019

Bryony Kimmings’ offbeat, deeply funny and sharply heartbreaking feminist musical about the worst year of her life, when she lost her mind, her partner, her house and nearly lost her child.

Never one to shy away from big, scary topics, Kimmings’ processes her postnatal depression and the collapse of her personal life through the medium of witty and wacky songs, horror movie shtick, cleverly detailed set design and epic film projections.

I’m A Phoenix, Bitch asks how we turn trauma into power; how we learn to fly from tragedy, not drown.
