Clara Cupcakes Gretchen

Clara Cupcakes is finally giving the people what they want. This is a show about Gretchen.

Join multi-disciplined, multi-award nominated comedian Clara Cupcakes on this absurd and surreal romp based on the true star of the show – her bread thieving, 3am piano playing, meme-able evil overlord, chonky biscuit monster of a cat #content.

Nominated for best comedy at FRINGE WORLD in 2016 and the Golden Gibbo (Best Independent Show) in 2015 and 2017, Clara Cupcakes has toured her critically acclaimed shows throughout Australia and the world. Dipping her toes in various artforms, Clara is an established circus performer, cabaret artist and clown.

Gretchen once ate vomit off her own head.

I hope you're all pleased with yourselves.
