FROM THE ARTIST:
“An affirmation of life in all its heartbreak, darkness and obscenity, as powerful and beautiful as you’ll get anywhere.” The West Australian
Meet June, a brilliant, bold, brassy, bad-ass opera singer, given to singing to her dead stuffed cat, reminiscing about her lurid love life, consuming vast amounts of vodka, and chastising her lousy ex-husband Once famous and celebrated, June is down on her luck. She’s lost her man, her looks, her career, her cat, and now she’s on the verge of losing her marbles. Agoraphobic and unable to leave her apartment, she turns to her booze, her pills, her dead stuffed cat and her trusty vibrator Mr Buzzy for solace.
“A searing psychological profile… in your face, immediate and compelling. What a joy to witness an actress not only embrace but trumpet all the jagged little edges, contradictions, hopes and fears of a character so thoroughly."
See it if you delight in a one-person show where a young diva brings music and camp to his cabaret venue with energy and elan. So much fun!
Don't see it if dislike one-person shows that get a very campy, loud, and insane!
See it if you want to see a very good one woman show about an aging, down on her luck entertainer. It's a very well written script.
Don't see it if You don't like one man shows dealing with difficult situations.
