Cry Baby - A woman sitting in a chair wearing a black suit. She has her arms out to the side and is leaning forward

Cry Baby

From Meryl Streep to Kate Winslet, from Jodie Foster to Emma Thompson, everyone’s crying. And they all won an Oscar for it…but why do you humans like to cry anyway? Isabella Perversi brings a solo show investigating tears. Created from real life diary entries from her 6 years old self, inspired by childhood dance competitions and channelling her inner Jane Fonda; this is part song, part dance, part sock puppet.”

"Cry Baby is a show that can not be missed." - Theatre Travels.

"..Perversi is just getting started in showing us what she’s capable of." - My Melbourne Arts

"[Perversi] became one of my favourite new writers during lockdown. She writes about women without making women hide behind the mask of what’s expected of women." - Sometimes Melbourne
