Too Pretty To Punch

About

A comedy spoken word show about gender, the media and not fitting any of the boxes, full of explosive movement, original songs and kickass video projection.
Edalia Day is a banjo wielding, poetry slam winning, trans warrior, taking on the world one troll at a time.
Too Pretty To Punch is a hilarious and uplifting journey through what it means to be trans in 21st century Britain. It reminds all of us (regardless of who we are) of the power of celebrating our existence.
