'The Kick Inside' is real.
It is one woman coming to terms with her decision not to have children.
It is a scrutiny of how personal and societal expectations can unknowingly influence our decision-making.
It is an attempt to understand why being child-free is fundamentally challenging to us all, Kerensa included.
Kerensa considers her mother’s desire for grandchildren, cracks open the canon of capitalism, mourns her lack of female role models - and embarks on a quest to become a childless goddess.
Revel in the messiness of buggering off all that good and bad advice and finding your own glorious path. Expect absurd humour, psychedelic trips, a breeding aphid and a bit of bad dancing in an attempt to avoid those quiet moments where fear and loneliness creep in.
