We need to talk for GM Fringe 2022

We all know what it means when your significant other utters the words "We Need To Talk"...

We Need To Talk: A Jazz Cabaret is a show produced, directed and performed by Jas Nisic and accompanied by Dave Cavendish. Join us on this journey through a breakup starting with delusion, denial, heartbreak and rebounds until we reach our final destination of self-love. You will ride the rollercoaster of emotions from lamenting to laughter featuring songs from Ella Fitzgerald, Etta James, Eva Cassidy, and many more jazzy standards.

Jas is a born and bred Mancunian working-class creative who trained in Musical Theatre at the Royal Academy of Music in London and worked alongside West End performers, directors and musical directors. She sang for the Broadway legend, and Tony Award Winner, Patty LuPone, as well as performing as Eponine, for the Les Misérables composer, Claude Michel-Shönberg's public masterclass.

Dave is a composer, musical director, choral director and pianist. Over the years, David worked with The Royal Liverpool Philharmonic, The Black Dyke Mills Brass Band (BBC2 – listen to the band), Granada Television Studios (Stars and Their Doubles, musical director, and arranger - London Weekend Television) and much more!

Catch We Need To Talk: A Jazz Cabaret at the International Anthony Burgess Foundation on the 19th and 20th July with tickets starting at £12.

The show is produced by Blue Balloon Theatre, a female-led Manchester based, and non-profit, theatre company. The company acts as a platform for creatives to develop and showcase their original work. We are two neurodiverse and working-class artists from Harpurhey and Blakeley.

We pride ourselves on our inclusive and supportive environment for creatives to perform in, regardless of background and experience and were nominated for the Saboteur Awards for Best Regular Spoken Word event in 2022. We have begun the scheme Theatre For All, for those struggling financially to be able to purchase discounted tickets by filling in a simple and strictly confidential form.
