Notorious Strumpet & Dangerous Girl

Circus • Performance
Written & performed by Jess Love.

WINNER Original New Circus Award- Melb Fringe 2016

Julia Mullins was a thief, a prostitute and a drunk. Jess Love is a carnie, a queer and likes a drink.

Get taken in by the self-supporting arms of this astounding Alcoholics Anonymous meeting. Where twisted storytelling and spectacular circus skills are shaken and stirred, with one part dark comedy, one part serenity and three parts hostility, hilarity and honesty.

This anticipated new solo work by Jess Love (The Candy Butchers, La Soiree, Circa) plunges into the dark stuff, both the booze and the trail of mayhem it leaves in its wake.

A strikingly truthful tale of one woman's voyage to connect with her convict past. Take a trip down blackout lane and celebrate the fact that she's still standing.

"Jess Love's autobiographical one woman show fuses circus and theatre with boldness, charm and dark hilarity.. Savagely funny, fearless and genuinely uplifting show" ★★★★★ The Age
