About this event

Unfortunately, growing up happens to everyone. Along the way, some things stick with us; a comment from someone you thought you knew, or an attitude towards an object that you love. How do these things shape us? A show which poses more questions than it answers, explore vulnerability, change and strength from a female perspective with Dr Selflove. Directed by Benjamin Maio Mackay.

★★★★ "Natural and emotive performer" The Advertiser.

"Desmond's stage presence is at once casual and controlled" Collage Adelaide.

"Unique and commanding, in the most delicate of ways" The AU Review.

"Honest, brave and thought provoking" Great Scott.

Please note: This event has had a venue change from 'Strathmore Hotel' to 'Mercure Grosvenor Hotel Adelaide' since the Adelaide Fringe Guide was printed.

Please note: The Auslan Interpreted performance has changed from Saturday 7th March to Thursday 5th March
