Obscene inverts! Sexless termites! Hermaphroditic spinsters! Just some of the things Maud & Claude have been called while touring the world with their timeless lavender cabaret (read: grubby lesbo freakshow)…
Strange Hungers was originally created for Glasgay! 2011 in association with The Arches. It is a joyous deconstruction of lesbian identity, stereotyping and representation throughout history wrapped up in an energetic, comedic performance that skews the lines between theatre, live art and cabaret.
Strange Hungers was devised by the cast:
Claude – Rosana Cade; Maud – Eilidh MacAskill; Aud – Deb Jones; Magic Fingers – Lizy Stirrat
“Fish & Game – perhaps the flower of Scotland’s response to international experimental theatre [present] a comic and educational trip through history and around the world…A worthy archaeology of hidden histories…interrupted by sensuality, humour and a hot titty show… connects easily to the neo-cabaret revival” Gareth Vile, The Skinny, November 2011
“Hilarious…unique and bizarre” – Diva Magazine
Marlborough Theatre, Brighton, 30th & 31st March 2012 : Part of Pink Fringe’s Culture Shock, supported by the National Lottery through Arts Council England
The Arches, Glasgow, Thu 27–Sat 29 Oct 2011 : A co-production with the Arches and Glasgay! 2011
@fishngame LOVED Strange Hungers! What’s next for Claude and Maude?
Laughed so much last night @fishngame new production Strange Hungers, hysterical AND enlightening, finishes tonight
I heart @fishngame A riotous, absurd and risky show, putting the greedy spectator on the spot and not apologising. Brazen, funny and smart!
What an enjoyable night with @fishngame! Strange Hungers is brilliant. Worth every penny x
Had a fantastic time at #strangehungers at the arches last night. Very very funny, well done girls!
We can’t WAIT. Finally – a cabaret-cum-titty-show about lesbian history. Why hasn’t this happened before?!
Congratulations. Strange Hungers is the definitive lesbian show. Hilarious, courageous and political! Thank you!
