Strange Hungers

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

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!
