HOT BROWN HONEY, Jan 9 – 27, 2018 | YORK THEATRE
(Briefs Factory—AUSTRALIA)

Hot Brown Honey turns up the heat, delivering lashings of sass and a hot pinch of empowerment in the smash-hit that took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm. Packing a punch of hip hop politics, the Honeys will make you laugh, cry, clap and shake what your mama gave you. This stellar posse of phenomenal women make noise as they defiantly smash stereotypes and remix the system. Fighting the power never tasted so sweet.
Production Sponsor: Dignity Memorial

A mind-blowing, autobiographical, audio-based artwork that immerses the audience in the experience of descending into coma from a rare brain infection, brain surgeries and subsequent rehabilitation with an acquired brain injury, Reassembled Slightly Askew is a new kind of storytelling, never done before about this topic.

Doireann has a show for us. She’s going to sing a couple of songs, read a couple of poems and maybe tell a few stories. She’s going to be doing a duet with her brother, who’s been dead for 3,104 days. That’s how long she’s been thinking about this show, while everyone has been asking, “Are you alright?”
