Short Synopsis

WINNERS of Best Cabaret at Adelaide Fringe, in The Guardian Australia’s TOP 5 picks of Adelaide Fringe and Nominated for Best Newcomers at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival this is 5-Star Sass by “Three Comedy Goddesses” (Theatre People)

Fresh from their multi award-winning success at festivals across Australia, the all-singing, all-dancing all- fighting Fringe Wives Club are ready to take on the world.

Part explosive comedy cabaret, part interactive edu-tainment: this sequin-clad, champagne-fuelled, cosmic feminist extravaganza is guaranteed to blow minds and pants. The Fringe Wives are ready to smash the patriarchy with the full force of their combined, unquestionable talent and an empowering live soundtrack.

Fiercely funny, Fringe Wives Club is a high-energy comedy party, busting with original live music, anarchic audience games, epic dance moves and ooozing in glamour. Brandishing weapons of entertainment, politically-charged passion and personal stories, the Fringe Wives dissect what it means to be a feminist today, undermining the fear that indoctrinates bigotry, sexism and homophobia, and skewering the lack of education that continues to shroud the female body.

This timely and uncompromising feminist call-to-arms is created and performed by physical comedy queen Tessa Waters (Winner: Spirit of the Fringe Award, Adelaide Fringe 2018 as seen on ABC Comedy Next Gen and SBS Eurovision), musical comedy powerhouse Victoria Falconer (Winner: London Cabaret Award 2015, EastEnd Cabaret/Yeti's Demon Dive Bar) and acclaimed comedian and storyteller Rowena Hutson (Winner: Most Outstanding Comedy Melbourne Fringe 2015, Strong Female Character).
