Northern Stage is Curious: 2019

Updated: May 8, 2019

Hi luvvies,

I've got a gig coming up on 1st June in... Newcastle - I'm so excited. I've been dying to visit Newcastle for ages so a massive thank you to Phil at Curious for inviting me. It will be an evening of comedy, theatre and performance from established and emerging Queer Northern talent, which is sure to leave you Curious for more…


-Host: Stevie Wonderful. The first ever winner of National Drag competition "King of the Castle", Stevie Wonderful a.k.a Fiona King will be hosting and performing hits by the legendary Stevie Wonder.

-*gender not included is a one-person non binary cabaret performance by Melody Sproates. An exploration into identities and how they can dictate our lives, told through dance hits, 80s cartoons theme songs and Madonna.

-L'uomo (translating in Italian as 'The Man') is a short dance theatre duet centered around two men. It is an enveloping of two people, entwining themselves through intimate gestures that interact and reciprocate the invitation to touch and connect to another. Caught between a place where delicate exchanges of affection and moments driven by the heart-felt become entangled with the discomforts of prejudice, L'uomo examines and highlights the concerns same-sex couples can still face when holding hands or showing affection in public.

-ME! I'll be taking you on a hilarious musical journey; serenading you with my treasure trove of stupidly brilliant comic songs. Performing my take on songs that you'll know and love, but in a way you've never heard before.

“incredible acts involving laughter, tears, social issues & lots of glitter! Raw comedy & passion for change. Sides were hurting from laughing so much!”
