Claire Dawson is a Woman on the Edge

Tasmania’s ‘Queen of Cabaret’, Claire Dawson, is back in Burnie and playing her most popular character, the chronically confused SiSi.

A Woman On The Edge will be performed at the Burnie Arts & Function Centre’s Theatre on Friday 18 March at 7.30 pm. Warning: This show is very, very funny!

In this musical tour de force Claire Dawson, star of the recent hit shows Blitz! and Smile, Smile, Smile, sings up a storm of old and new songs, while simultaneously appearing via video as her own backing group.  She also finds time to ponder life, love and how she came to find that gun in her hand and her man lying dead!

Anyone who has ever doubted themselves for a moment will be inspired by Sisi’s journey and its uplifting conclusion.  She is not your average girl and this is not your average cabaret spectacular. 

This show will be touring to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival and touring centres in the UK later this year.
