It's Not Easy Being Green

Cabaret / Theatre
Scaled karen web 0348
This high-energy, emotionally charged cabaret challenges the perceptions that 'mental illness' is a dirty word. It's about mental wellness! It is a light-hearted trip, deep into the twisted rabbit-hole of the human psyche. As passionate as it is funny, the show will inspire, entertain and start that conversation we all need to have with ourselves and with each other.
This show has something for everyone; flirtatious interactions with the audience, yoga (with a little mania on the side), beautiful blues, a measure of social awkwardness, a lap-dance and a quarter-marathon rap with beat-box accompaniment.
This manically funny show about conquering adversity and battling inner turmoil is great therapy. Featuring original music and quirky text, it will reach out to minds, hearts and souls.

Chateau Apollo entrance is via 74 Frome St, Adelaide
