In this historical feminist coming-of-age musical comedy show, Harriet brings forth a team of rebellious women from the history of science to help her wage battle against ignorance, patriarchy and her inner demons. She also looks back over her career as a performer, from school plays to now, presenting her achievements alongside those of renowned inventors, healers and technological pioneers. Bold move, idiot. Funny Women Award winner and So You Think You're Funny? finalist, 2016. Buxton Fringe Comedy Award winner 2017. 'Marvellous' (Chortle.co.uk). 'Her lyrics were truly inspired' (Bruce Dessau). 'Fairly niche' (Stylist).
