Overflow – Online

A Bush Theatre Production filmed by The Umbrella Rooms
Sold out

Travis Alabanza’s critically acclaimed Overflow, performed at the Bush Theatre and streaming internationally to the comfort of your living room


‘Club toilets have taught me more about sisterhood than any book

Cornered into a flooding toilet cubicle and determined not to be rescued again, Rosie distracts herself with memories of bathroom encounters, drunken heart-to-hearts by dirty sinks, friendships forged in front of crowded mirrors, and hiding from trouble.

But with her panic rising and no help on its way, can she keep her head above water?

Following the success of the live performances which were curtailed due to lock-down and the huge international response to the online broadcast, Overflow, a hilarious and devastating tour of women’s bathrooms by acclaimed writer and performer Travis Alabanza (Jubilee, Burgerz), directed by Debbie Hannan and performed by Reece Lyons returns.
