Falling Stars Theatre: Meet Parveen

Wed 18 Oct | 7.30pm | Pay What You Decide

“The mattress between my legs has reached maximum capacity.”

Parveen is 45 or 46 (she can’t remember which). Sweaty, fed up, gets regular headaches and wears pyjamas and knickers in bed. Welcome to the Menopause, Parveen.

A week in the life of Parveen examines how the menopause affects a woman’s world; 3am showers, angry about nothing, confused, confused why confused, toilet trips, forgetting that important word, battling teenagers when all you want to do is hide, high sex drive (yes you heard me right) and just wanting to stay YOU!

This play will stimulate thoughts, questions, responses (we hope growth will be inevitable) for women beginning or not yet started their menopause journey, for partners who are not sure what’s going on and for those menopausal women who feel isolated, this story is yours.

There will be a post show discussion after the performance on the subject of the Menopause.

Wed 18 Oct | 7.30pm | Pay What You Decide


This event is Pay What You Decide, which means you don’t have to pay until after you have seen the event.

Pay What You Decide not only allows you to pay what you can afford, rather than a fixed ticket price, but also removes the financial risk of buying a ticket for an event in advance without knowing whether you are going to enjoy it or not.

Tickets are available to book in advance as usual, but there is no obligation for you to pay until after you have seen the event. You can then decide on a price which you think is suitable based on your experience, which means if you haven’t enjoyed it at all, you don’t have to pay anything.

Please ensure you have arrived and collected your tickets 15 minutes before the event starts in order to secure your seats. At the end of the show, you can decide what to pay, either by cash or card on the door.
