Edward Day / Fragility Takeover

Too Pretty to Punch

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 in this celebration of transgender visibility.

"Do I look transgender?

Do I sound it?

Do I come across as female enough?

I doubt it."

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.

Praise for Edalia's past shows:

"Day never ceased to impress, effortlessly switching between characters...the best original play I have seen." ★★★★★ -(Theatre Bath)

"Day’s language is a flower-bomb of rich, thought-provoking imagery.” ★★★★ -(A Younger Theatre)

"Clever, intriguing but funny and dark in equal measure, this piece provides a detached appraisal of the conflicting rules we live by." ★★★★ -(West End Wilma)
