What Fresh Hell is This? Menopause in Four Acts:

If you or someone you know is affected by menopause (hint: that’s all of us), you’ll find all the empathy and information you need right here.

Watch as award-winning actor Jane Longhurst tackles the many-thorned beast that is menopause, arriving newly embattled to a succession of appointments, as a series of different women. In her meetings with real-life women’s health doctor Natasha Vavrek, we’ll discover the science behind the symptoms and the numerous options for treatment.

Immediately following this performance, the audience and speakers will be invited across the street to Beaker Street’s Festival Hub at the Tasmanian Museum and Art Gallery, featuring delicious food and drink, live music, science/art exhibitions, 150+ scientists to chat with, and more!
