paint the town red! Eleven-year-old Karla has her period for the first time and Urban Dictionary isn't providing much help. Not just for girls, this taboo crushing, period positive skit comedy takes you along as Karla experiences every menstruator's worst nightmare... Overflows! Rouge pads! Grab your blood plugs, dust off the surfboards, it's leak week.
Bring your teens and tweens to this play about periods you wished you’d seen as a teenager! Swear-word-free, sex-talk-free, culturally and religiously friendly we’ve worked hard to make this show a belly of laughs, a bucket of truth, and a sigh of relief.
Informed by personal stories, education books, and experts… Ephemeral Theatre breathes life into the stale classroom puberty talk.

LEVEL II UPDATE
After assessing the situation, around changing alert levels and checking regulations, we are confident we can safely and responsibly proceed with ‘period.‘ For as long as we are in level 2 performances will involve necessary physical distancing precautions and reduced seating capacity.
We highly recommend buying tickets in advance due to the new reduced capacity.
We have decided to cancel the Monday 31 August performance. The promotional artwork has not been changed to reflect this yet.
