Given the chance, how would you have marked your passage?
What nuggets of advice would you offer your 12-year-old, cusp-ofwomanhood self?
Did you have a Bat Mitzvah? Did your brother get a TV for his ceremony and you get some second-hand Charlie perfume?
Hear the Bat Mitzvah speeches you wished you would have written from an array of brilliant women – wry, funny and a little bit twisted. Featuring visual artist Jacqueline Nicholls, poet Leah Thorn, filmmaker Lisa Gornick, video artist Oriana Fox, journalist and editor of Diva Magazine Jane Czyzselska, performer and writer nat tarrab and ‘apologies for absence’ contributions from Charlotte Mendelson and Naomi Alderman.
Hilarious, provocative and intelligent spoken word, comedy and debate.
