About this event

Half-white, half-brown. Farm-raised, city-living. Femme-presenting, bisexually-orientated. This classically-trained cabaret show-off is stuck at the crossroads of identity politics. The lights aren't changing. She can't even drive.

Armed with "sharp, acidic wit" (GlamAdelaide), a "fabulously expressive face" (Herald Sun) and a myriad of musical instruments, this modern show woman conjures an honest, hilarious hour about serious stuff. Like a TED talk. But with more tap dancing.

From the co-creator of international sensations EastEnd Cabaret and 1/3rd of the award-winning feminist firebrands Fringe Wives Club, this is Victoria Falconer's debut solo show. "Her seemingly off-the-cuff commentary is the work of a comic genius." ★★★★★ Three Weeks. "An exceptional musician" - ★★★★1/2 The Adelaide

Presented by:
Fringe Wives Club
