Hysterical: The hilarious, history of hysteria
Rebecca Buckle (Colchester, England)
 
Hello, my name is Rebecca and I'm a hysterical woman.

From Plato to Freud, witches to suffragettes, discover everything you never knew you needed to know about the history of hysteria.

In a riotous digital lecture, join Rebecca (along with a puppet or two) for an eye-opening expedition into this fascinating ‘diagnosis’ and follow her own personal quest to shake off a label that has been placed on women for over 2,500 years.

Press

“Hysterical! is a a delightful amusement that simultaneously serves as a serious investigation into what amounts to misogyny in gynaecological and psychological thinking. It would be a useful addition to any doctor's medical training but it is delivered with a light touch. It is a performance that earns a place as real theatre: watch it!” (British Theatre Guide)
