A feminist cabaret out to make dads cry

A feminist cabaret out to make dads cry

This is the final week to catch the play ‘In Whorefish Bloomers: The Waitresses’ Lament’, which can be seen at the Alexander Bar Upstairs Theatre until Saturday, July 22, at 9pm nightly.

Written by Sue Pam-Grant and Sheena Stannard, the play is an adaptation and re-imaging of Sue Pam-Grant and Sheena Stannard’s 1980s underground feminist cabaret. Exhumed from the back of Stannard’s sewing cupboard and presented again for audiences, two young Cape Town actresses (Jamie-Lee Money and Donna Cormack-Thomson) take on Lori and Beth, waitresses on their first night at a new job. Audiences can look forward to a collection of episodes stuffed with humour, word play, cheesy dance moves, a sprinkle of song and a drizzle of darkness.
