Claire Dawson

A Woman on the Edge

Tasmania’s Queen of Cabaret is back as her most popular character, the chronically conflicted SiSi. The show opens in a crescendo of drama as Sisi shoots her lover, Joe. A lively musical journey ensues as wacky misfit Sisi reflects on a life filled with mishap and strange relationships; Men, mother, father, teachers, bosses, all are 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. In the midst of all this, SiSi finds time to ponder life, love and how she came to find that gun in her hand and her man lying dead. SiSi is not your average girl and this is not your average cabaret spectacular!
