SCI FI SYNTHROCK NEO-CABARET & MUSICAL COMEDY
Laurie's first fully fledged narrative solo show. A journey through space and time, to escape the earth (cause it's a bit shit) and set foot on the moon. Will she be the first woman to set (stiletto) heel on the moon, and who will she meet along the way?
Forget C-3P0 and the other one! Laurie's got her trusty synthesiser and her tiny drum machine and is setting a course to space. With brand new original tune-age, plus quirky covers of Bowie and Bellamy, Space Cadette surges upwards to an electric, neo-cabaret genre previously unknown.
Directed by History of Heavy Metal comedian Andrew O'Neill.

"Space Cadette is an enchanting, funny cabaret show [...] an exploration to the moon that has so much to say about earth"
"The notional, potty-mouthed love-child of
Victoria Wood and Gary Numan"
"Drops scientific facts like the Kardashians
drop brand names, way too smart to be a
truly dizzy space cadette"
"Rock n roll geeks and space nerds, unite!
Laurie Black's show is enthralling, extravagant
and truly something out of this world"
