The Bleeding Obvious
Thursday 5 March, doors open 7.30pm, show starts 8pm
Funny original one woman cabaret + support
[OK, it’s not jazz, but anyone who is compared to Victoria Wood and Tim Minchin is worth checking out. It’s another example of how The Globe is broadening the range of its subversive musical offerings.]
What happens when you tumble out of the big pink closet and across the LGBTQ+ spectrum in a sprawling heap? Well, life is never quite as straight as it seems…
One-woman cabaret The Bleeding Obvious (aka Yorkshire lesbian Jessica Rowbottom) endeavours to describe the experience through original songs and tales which are sometimes funny, occasionally poignant, frequently emotional, usually queer – and it’s probably the only show with the lyrics “demisexual panromantic polyamorous androgyne”!
She’s performed to a packed off-West End theatre at Pride In London and a sold-out show at Cadogan Hall London with The Pink Singers, not to mention shows at London LGBT+ Pride Picnic, L Fest Lesbian Festival, Trans Pride Brighton, Sheffield Diversity Festival, Rotherham Pride, Norwich Arts Centre and more. Her performances have drawn comparisons with Victoria Wood, Tim Minchin, The Divine Comedy and Fascinating Aïda.
With spoken-word support from AJ McKenna.
