Hers – A Cabaret by Matthew Semple

Event Description

Behind every successful man is a great woman—or more likely, a few dozen.

Acclaimed cabaret artist and writer Matt Semple celebrates the feminine in Hers: a love letter to mothers, sisters, partners, and self-identifying women everywhere.

Accompanied by a three-piece band, Matt tracks his journey of feminism through the influence of female role models in his own life and across the world.

Equal parts funny and heartfelt, Hers explores a personal side of feminism through the music of pop, rock, and musical theatre.

“Exceptionally funny” — Theatre Buzz AU

“Sharp, clever and acerbic—almost more Minchin than Minchin.” — Weekend Notes

“Real, honest and upfront. Semple is doing what established comedians do best with a no-holds-barred approach to humour.” — Scenestr
