“Devastating and beautiful and true” Caitlin Moran
“Rosa rips your heart out, mangles it, kisses it better, and then puts it back while making you laugh all the way through” ★★★★★ Broadway World
Rosa captures moments in a blend of poetry and emotion so real that we feel transported in time.★★★★ Broadway Baby

An honest and life-affirming one woman show, full of laughs and love.
Rosa is writing her resolutions. She is going to stop going out with plonkers, start doing yoga and write some really good art. But before she’s had time to delete her dating apps and get into downward dog, she’s diagnosed. Suddenly faced with hospitals, chemotherapy and her own mortality, Rosa’s new goal for the year ahead is to survive it.

Devastating and beautiful and true.
You’d have to be ossified not to be moved.
Moving, uplifting, funny, cheeky and glorious.
