The Lab


It’s 2014.

Miley Cyrus is the leader of a ‘YOLO’ induced generation obsessed with sex, selfies and shots.

Blurred Lines is playing on everyone’s radio, twerking is the latest dance craze and slut-shaming is the new past-time. Britain is full of young adults about to embark on the wildest week of their life, armed with UV body paint, a set of drinking rules and the cheapest booze they can find.

The Freshers are up for the challenge.

Amy has just turned 18 and is ready to taste freedom for the first time. Having just been dropped off in a new city ready to start University she is eager to ditch her parents, meet new friends and make memories that will last her a lifetime.

What she doesn’t expect is to make unforgettable mistakes that will stay with her forever…

#BodyProblems is a one-woman comedy. It uses an array of multimedia techniques to allow the audience to follow Amy on her journey and witness experiences through her eyes. It explores fresher’s week sexism in a unique, visually compelling and sadly entertaining way which will either confirm, or challenge your view on modern day youth culture and the University experience.

Running time: 45 mins

Age guideline: 16+ (contains swearing and adult content)
