” An energetic and amuzing insight into the OCD within all of us” RIP IT UP.
“The whole show is a completely engaging marriage of graceful, gangly physical humour and moving honesty… When I asked my plus one what she thought of the show, she said simply. “I love her.” Uh-huh. AUSTRALIAN STAGE
Frances is caught in the rat trap of this multi-tasking, multi-vitamin, multi-media modern era. When she attempts to trade now now now for a little namaste, her carefully controlled existence rapidly unravels, revealing the virtues of procrastination and the joys of mixing yoga and alcohol.
Following successful runs in Melbourne and Adelaide and a hometown sell-out season in 2013, Confessions of a Control Freak is back to kick off a new Queensland tour. Don’t miss former ballerina and self-confessed control freak Belinda Raisin (Rabbit, April’s Fool), joined by pitch-perfect pianist Jamie Teh for the utterly entertaining cabaret that Australian Stage adored for its “completely engaging marriage of graceful, gangly physical humour and moving honesty.”
This is absolutely one show to pop straight on top of your To Do list today!
A co-production between Belinda Raisin and the Judith Wright Centre

Plus Special Guest Mae Wilde in ‘A Wilde Night With Mae’
With few boundaries but enough sass and sexiness to excuse any faux pass, Mae Wilde intellect is sharp, sensual and her slightly tipsy swagger takes her audience on a giddy ride that leaves them all gagging for more. Mae Wilde is the secret love child of Oscar Wilde and Mae West. Mae West was the only woman Oscar Wilde ever loved.. or for that matter even slept with. Such was her power over men. This power has been passed on to her daughter Mae Wilde…. With few boundaries but enough sass and sexiness to excuse any faux pass, Mae Wilde’s intellect is sharp, sensual and her slightly tipsy swagger takes her audience on a giddy ride that leaves them all gagging for more. This sassy broad sings, swaggers, trills and thrills as she saunters like a lioness holding herself like no woman has ever before. Mae Wilde’s ukelele anthems will inspire and delight, her death defying feats of public kazoo indecency will shock and amaze and her costumes will be marveled and applauded. Mae Wilde dazzles and delights with her diabolical devilry as veteran vaudeville vixen. Mae Wilde can sing, dance and tickle her way (using a feather or two) into anyone’s heart abusing her 15 years of experience as a performer and musician. Her wardrobe is as extensive as her love life and Mae is loved both in Australia and abroad. A Broad in the fullest sense.
