Event Description

“She certainly knows how to make an entrance – and she definitely knows how to get a laugh.” Stage Whispers

After a sell-out season at the 2015 Queensland Cabaret Festival with UnPC award-winning performer Cienda McNamara returns with her latest insight into one of society’s biggest taboos – the single woman. Natural Born Spinster is not another typical sad girl routine, but rather an exploration of the spinster to see if that ‘single’ woman was made or was she just simply born this way? Come and spend an evening with Cienda as she brings the ‘sink’ (single income no kids) to the house. In this hilarious and searingly honest look at being single and childless after a certain age.

Directed by Catarina Hebbard

Written and Performed by Cienda McNamara
