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.'
Conny has continued to develop Nhair beyond the collaboration and is currently touring Nhair around the Southwest. Next stop is The Alma Tavern in Bristol and you can get your tickets here! We wish Conny the best of luck with the development of Nhair and can't wait to see it at it's next development stage.
Keep that garden growing Conny!
