Lucy Peach My Greatest Period Ever

The Butterfly Club presents

Lucy Peach My Greatest Period Ever

My Greatest Period Ever is public service announcement about the power of the period and after sell-out seasons in WA, Lucy Peach brings her award-winning work to Melbourne for the first time. With a heart of gold, a silver tongue and a steel trap-like wit, the exultant folk pop wunderkind uses science, songs and stories to show all how to life hack the menstrual cycle from a curse into a blessing. 

Lucy found inspiration in her own menstrual cycle to find a new way of life, unlock and amplify her creativity and produce her award-winning sophomore album. This is the true life reflection of how teaching high school students how to use a tampon, 'good luck and have a nice life', evolved into My Greatest Period Ever. Witness the proof and a heart warming, eye-opening musical exploration into modern folklore and what it means to be or love a woman in the 21st century. There will also be capes.

'I wish I had a period – a bloke, post show, 2017.

'A masterclass in creating goodwill.'  The Blue Room Theatre

Lucy Peach is a stadium-folk singer from Fremantle, WA with a parallel career in sex education. Inspired by Bob Dylan, Stevie Nicks, her menstrual cycle and her convict ancestors, she has released two EPs: Wax and Wane (2011) and Silver Tongue’ (2016) and has recently turned her talents to preaching the power of the period. Renowned for her on stage banter, she recently wrote and performed My Greatest Period Ever. The show premiered at Perth’s FRINGE WORLD in 2017 and went on to win the coveted Martin Sims Award, quoted by FRINGE WORLD to be 'the top prize of the Festival, recognising the best new Western Australian work in the Festival that is destined to succeed on the world's stage'.
