Cabaret Nights 2015: MDMA – Modern Day Maiden Aunt

Written by and starring Geraldine Quinn

The novelist Jane Austen never married, but had 23 nieces and nephews. She wrote some of the greatest novels in the English language. Geraldine Quinn (Spicks & Specks, Adam Hills Tonight) has 19 nieces and nephews. She draws rude pictures, writes songs about Bowie – and has wiped many bottoms.

MDMA: Modern Day Maiden Aunt is the latest original cabaret from Melbourne International Comedy Festival Golden Gibbo Award winner Geraldine Quinn (Best Local Independent Production 2011). Do you have to have kids? What’s wrong with being an aunt or uncle? Most importantly: will any of her nieces and nephews buy a ticket? She doesn’t have any good stuff to leave them in her will yet.

Don’t miss a glittering celebration of modern aunthood, not breeding and the fine art of embarrassing other people’s children from a two-time New Zealand Fringe nominee (Standout Performer and Best Music, 2014).
