Typecasting and a theatre career drove her to insanity. She exchanged stage wings for padded walls, glamorous costumes for a white nightgown, adoring audiences for a bunch of inmates. Yet, she will sing! A madwoman proudly recounts the roles and songs which made her who she is today, celebrating that fine line between creativity and madness. A semi-autobiographical cabaret set in a mental asylum. Director: Clare McKenna. Show image by Ian Mears Photography. Recommended for: adults, elderly, theatre community, LGBTQ community.

A semi-autobiographical cabaret set in a lunatic asylum. From Sweeney Todd, to Jane Eyre the musical, from Sunset Boulevard to Kiss of the Spiderwoman, Mad Women in my Attic! is a fantastic romp through showtunes, folk and cabaret songs, celebrating the mentally unstable women that populate music and theatre.
