Created and written by Conny Hancock, Nhair was a collaboration between Greedy Pig Theatre Company and Conny Hancock.
'Conny can’t get her garden to grow. She’s tried everything, but all that’s there is soil. And honestly? It’s starting to piss her off. Couple that with a struggling career, a less-than-thrilling sex life, and being a small, broke, chubby girl in her twenties, and Conny’s having a pretty sh*t time.
Oh. And she’s also really hairy.
Conny Hancock and Greedy Pig Theatre Company join forces for a hilarious, empowering and brutally honest ode to self-love in ‘Nhair’, coming to Sparkfest 2021.'
CREATOR, PERFORMER & CO- PRODUCER
Conny Hancock is a Southwest-based theatre maker who creates feminist theatre, often exploring political themes such as social boundaries. From her own personal journey of living with PCOS and excessive hair growth Conny created her one woman show Nhair to raise awareness of PCOS and reflect what it’s like to feel an outcast over something uncontrollable.
Conny’s work often takes comedic and Brechtian form making her work new, exciting and fun for an audience. After graduating from Plymouth Conservatoire with a degree in Acting she is now currently studying with Bath Spa to achieve her MA in Directing.
