Highbrow Smut

Being female can be an unbearably silly business! Joanna Eden and Leigh McDonald manage to spend a whole evening laughing, crying and even singing about it. Join them as they return triumphantly to Crazy Coqs clutching their Brighton Fringe 'First and Foremost Best Cabaret' award.

Join them on an oestrogen-driven, emotional- roller-coaster ride... from pigtails to puberty, stilettos to strollers, marriage to messing-it-up.

With candid, poignant and irreverent original songs alongside masterfully executed musical theatre gems, The Unbearable Pleasure of being a Woman is the brain-child of singer/songwriter (and mentor to Sam Smith) Joanna Eden and West End and National Theatre actress Leigh McDonald.

Don't miss this exceptional musical cabaret!
