Friendly Feminism for the Mild Mannered is my original feminist cabaret that debuted in June 2019 in the Adelaide Cabaret Fringe Festival.

Featuring 10 original songs and backed by an all-woman band, Friendly Feminism explores topics related to modern feminism; namely toxic masculinity, rape culture, the #metoo movement and allyship.

The 2020 Adelaide Fringe season played a sold-out and extended season, and was the winner of 4 Adelaide Fringe Awards.

Friendly Feminism for the Mild Mannered made its Western Australian debut at Perth FRINGE WORLD in January 2021, playing a sold-out season and winner a weekly award for Best Cabaret.
