A cubicle of one’s own

A one-woman show set in a bathroom and detailing trans experiences that goes from being vulnerable to fiercely unapologetic.

Written by British playwright Travis Alabanza, Overflow is an intimate account delivered by Rosie, a trans woman trapped into the corner of a flooding toilet cubicle, as she shares memories, thoughts and musings on the path to finding empowerment.

Overflow is brought to Australian stages by Director Dino Dimitriadis (who also designed the set), featuring Janet Anderson as Rosie. It is delivered by an all trans and gender-diverse team, both on and off the stage – the first of its kind in Australia.
