Saturday January 11th, 7:30pm – Priscilla Armstrong “Goodbye To Berlin”
“Armstrong’s risqué antics, creates an experience of forbidden cabaret at the time of the rise of Adolf Hitler.” – InDaily, Adelaide’s Independent News.
The well-known Kit Kat Klub has been boarded up along with all the other popular Cabaret venues of Berlin. Sally has transformed an abandoned house into a lavish cocktail bar for her final cabaret, ‘Goodbye to Berlin.’ Hidden in the depths of the city, this secret cabaret is set in the 30’s shortly after the story of Cabaret as you know it. Haven’t you ever wondered what happened to Sally?
Sunday January 12th, 7:30pm – David Quirk
You might have seen David Quirk in Rosehaven, Celia Pacquola and Luke McGregor’s acclaimed ABC series where he plays the odd/lovely character of Damian, the Tasmanian hoarding locksmith. Or maybe it was as Josh Thomas’ love interest in ‘Please Like Me’. If not there, perhaps it was with Sam Simmons in Problems, or with Sammy J & Randy in Ricketts Lane or with the Kates on Get Krackin. Who can say?
Stand-up comedian and actor David Quirk has cemented his place on our TV screens and as an original voice on the international comedy circuit, with hit live shows in Australia and the UK. His break-through live show, ‘Shaking Hands with Danger’, a storytelling tale about infidelity, took out the coveted peer voted award – ‘The Piece of Wood Award’ at the Melbourne International Comedy Festival, and was nominated for Best Comedy at the Sydney Comedy Festival. The show also ran successful seasons in both London and Edinburgh.
