A Tuttifrutti Cabaret: Little April Showers

Presented by Divabsurdity

Friday 6 April 2018

We are whispering to your left ear, tickling you with our petals:
"Don’t be upset about the rain. Spring is coming and we all are just about to bloom and it is going to be a revolution like every year. It is like they say: April showers bring May flowers."

After a successful Edinburgh Fringe festival 2017 and a monthly sold out cabaret nights, A Tuttifrutti Cabaret lands at the Blue Elephant Theatre with all-new exciting acts and fresh guests.

A monthly rendezvous with an all fierce female international cast. Featuring original material from the worlds of comedy, clown, circus and bouffon.

Expect a juicy, fruity cabaret you will never forget!

An ensemble of hilarious soul sisters who met few years ago in France at the École Philippe Gaulier and never left each others since then.
