Madame Ovary by Rosa Hesmondhalgh tells the heartbreaking and hilarious true story of Rosa's own ovarian cancer. This five-star sell-out Edinburgh hit is a life-affirming monologue exploring the typical struggles of staying relevant, with the less typical struggles of staying alive.

This play is taken from Plays from VAULT 5, an anthology, the fifth from Nick Hern Books, comprising of five of the best plays from VAULT Festival 2020, London's biggest and most exciting arts festival.
