A Bush Theatre Production filmed by Umbrella Rooms
Sold out

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.

 

HOW DOES IT WORK?

Overflow – Online is streaming worldwide, so you can watch it from anywhere. The performance will begin promptly at 2pm or 8pm GMT and will only be available to watch for the duration of the stream.
