Hazel is no angel. In fact, she’s a delusional, reality TV-obsessed fantasist who swears like a sailor and has a fondness for greased-up male strippers.
This event has passed.
She’s also hugely, undeniably, ready-to-pop pregnant.
Up the duff and coasting through ultrasounds, baby showers and appointments with her midwife, Hazel is very good at ignoring the stark reality that’s about to rock her world from the inside out—literally.
What happens when you’re not ready to swap grinding to Ginuwine for nursery rhymes? When you’re questioning whether you’re even cut out for motherhood, but that horse bolted eight months ago? Pony is the sassy, oh-so-crass one-woman crusade that’s desperately searching for the light at the end of the (vaginal) tunnel.
The exquisitely comedic Briallen Clarke (A Strategic Plan, Irreverent) stars as the mortifyingly hilarious Hazel in the Australian stage’s answer to Fleabag and The Letdown.
