The international online premiere of Travis Alabanza’s critically acclaimed Overflow, performed at the Bush Theatre

From internationally acclaimed writer and one of the UK’s most prominent trans voices, Travis Alabanza (Burgerz), Overflow is a hilarious and devastating tour of women’s bathrooms, who is allowed in and who is kept out.
