Singin in the Pain

The beloved Fringe favourite 'disability cabaret' is back again! Join the freshly crowned Mx Burlesque Adelaide Diana Divine for four nights of cabaret, community, and catharsis.

Talking disability theory, personal anecdotes, and pet peeves, 'Singin in the Pain' presents a bevy of burlesque & cabaret stars ready to share in this soapbox-style performance. Presented by and for disabled people and featuring a packed cast of new and familiar faces, this award-winning "group hug but with nudity" cannot be missed.

"This was not just a cabaret – this was activism as an art form" ★★★★★ Sarah Jane Justice
