A quirky and high energy cabaret about highs and lows!
19 MAY date at COOROY has been Cancelled. All other dates on sale with some tix available.
Direct from the Adelaide Fringe Festival 2018, It’s Not Easy Being Green is a high-energy, emotionally charged cabaret that challenges the perceptions that ‘mental illness’ is a dirty word. It’s about mental wellness! It is a light-hearted trip, deep into the twisted rabbit-hole of the human psyche. As passionate as it is funny, the show will inspire, entertain and start that conversation we all need to have with ourselves and with each other.
Karen Lee Roberts is tour guide on a journey of extremes based on real-life experiences and some figments of her unbridled imagination.
She is joined onstage by legendary jazz and blues pianist, Jeff Usher, as they take you on a guided tour through the life of Alexandra (a facet of Karen’s personality).
This show has something for everyone; flirtatious interactions with the audience, yoga (with a little mania on the side), beautiful blues, a measure of social awkwardness, a lap-dance and a quarter-marathon rap with beat-box accompaniment.
This manically funny show about conquering adversity and battling inner turmoil is great therapy. Cheaper than a visit to the therapist a ticket to this show is a prescription for a healthy dose of laughter and tears.
Directed by Catarina Hebbard, featuring original music and quirky text, It’s Not Easy Being Green will reach out to minds, hearts and souls.
“Karen’s sublimely talented approach will have you glued to her performance.”
Barry Stone, Reviewer.
