Intolerable Side Effects
Claire Parry (London, England)
Diane is a millennial rabbit. She's keen to find love but she's not keen to have a litter. At the GUM clinic she's advised to take 'Celery' as a form of 'Vegetation Separation'. But Celery causes some bizarre and unpleasant side effects, hindering her dating and sex-life significantly more than it helps. Join Diane as she generously and hilariously shares her trials and tribulations, from dating to female grooming to contraception - but will there ever be a revolution?
Intolerable Side Effects is an absurd, comic and poignant exploration of the darker side of contraception through the eyes (and ears) of the inimitable Diane.
