Mothers Ruin for Sept 2017

Mothers Ruin for Sept 2017

Cake Tin Foundation presents

MOTHER’S RUIN

Timberlina hosts | Gerry Potter Poet Afshan D’souza-Lodhi | Eva Serration Joe Sutherland | Holly Penfield

A spectacular night of outrageous and fiercely entertaining cabaret mayhem. Comedy, music, drag, poetry and the unpredictable presented by a top bill of subversive Queer artists from the North West and beyond.

Hosted by the glamorous and ecologically inspired hirsute hostess Timberlina with her special blend of sincerity and shambolic hilarity, 'Timberlina is an alt-drag act come eco-warrior come role model' Broadway World.

Plus: Afshan D’souza-Lodhi, queer muslim writer from Manchester whose work straddles the boundaries of flash fiction, poetry and script and sits in the hybrid world that many young British Desis (South Asians) exist in. Eva Serration, emerging local drag artist unleashing her warm dulcet tones to tease the ears and bring the tears. Joe Sutherland, with a caustic, catty wit and unapologetic confidence, has taken the UK comedy circuit by the balls, and the circuit liked it.

Fresh from his debut Edinburgh Fringe show and supporting Ellie Taylor on tour. And International cabaret luminary, Holly Penfield. “Holly Penfield is more than one fine diva —

she’s a whole host of them, and they all look wonderful and sound sensational.” Sir Tim Rice
