Claire Dawson

A Woman on the Edge

How did she end up with a gun in her hand and her man lying dead? Wacky misfit SiSi, the most popular character of Tasmania’s Queen of Cabaret, takes us on a lively musical journey; reflecting on a life filled with mishap and strange relationships; men, mother, father, teachers, bosses are all hilariously ‘analysed’ through song and monologues in a quest to understand just how she reached this point.

In this musical tour de force Claire Dawson, West End regular and star of the hit show Blitz!, plays instruments and sings up a storm of old and new songs, even appearing as her own backing group. SiSi is not your average girl and this is not your average cabaret spectacular!

 

Producers – Rod Anderson & Claire Dawson
Performer – Claire Dawson
Writer/Director – Rod Anderson
