Geraldine Quinn (3 stars)

This article is from 2009.

Suffering from the unholy trinity of being ginger, old and childless, Quinn believes she’s being hunted down as a witch. Singing Beyoncé-style pop ditties and 50s jukebox and jazz numbers, the angst-ridden Aussie nutjob retaliates with quirky material on annoying housemates, stalker exes and her fear of young people. She’s often too breathless and frantic to let her cleverly bitter material sink in though.

Sold out, Adelaide and Melbourne 2009. Ginger. Female. Childless. Accused of witchcraft, musical comedian Quinn must survive her atheist rock opera or be burned alive. 'Cleverly devised, brutally honest' - ***** (Advertiser, Adelaide). 'Misanthropic angsty hilarity' (Age, Melbourne).
