FRIENDLY FEMINISM FOR THE MILD MANNERED
Adelaide Cabaret Festival
Union Hall (formerly The Promethean)
Written & Directed By: Millicent Sarre
In a world where Angry Feminism gets a bad rap, why not give Friendly Feminism a go?
Millicent Sarre is a feminist. She also avoids confrontation at all costs. While the badass angry feminists of the world are off protesting and slut walking, you’ll find her writing songs about her feminist convictions, and engaging in conversations that challenge the patriarchy and the status quo. And she thinks the world needs both.
In a cabaret debut, Friendly Feminism for the Mild Mannered is a 60-minute cabaret crash-course in modern intersectional feminism, featuring original pop songs, relatable anecdotes, and a healthy dose of audience participation.
The score is fully original, the stories are personal, and in a new Golden Age of Women’s Rights, the content has never been more relevant.
Whether you consider yourself a hard-core feminist, a feminist newbie, or someone who’s a little sceptical about the whole feminism sha-bang, there's something in it for everyone.
Including original songs “Throw on Your Khaki (and Smash the Patriarchy)”, “F*ck You: An Ode to Catcallers” and “The Mansplain Song”, this is a cabaret debut not to be missed.
“She is one to watch.” – Barry Lenny, Broadway World.
