Do you have thoughts that lie beneath the surface? That you can’t say out loud? Thoughts that might be a little… impure? Claire does. #ImpureThoughts #HotMessProductions
Complete with a live three piece band and playing for THREE SHOWS ONLY at the marvellous Melba Spiegeltent, Claire Healy returns from the 7th to the 9th of December with her fabulously immodest evening of high energy music, laughter, and frivolity.
Do you have thoughts that lie beneath the surface? That you can’t say out loud? Thoughts that might be a little… impure? Claire does. And she likes to sing about them. This gin soaked anti-diva has removed what little of her internal filter she had left, dispensed with any remaining lady-like notions, and is ready to get it all out there in front of a room full of strangers.
“Growing up on a diet of fairy tales, BBC period dramas and Rom-Coms really embeds this idea of the pure damsel in distress.”, explains Creator Claire Healy. “'Impure Thoughts' is about rejecting these antiquated ideals and embracing the multifaceted complex mess of humans we really are. Getting a room full of strangers to sing along to a ukulele folk ballad about the joy of stalking people on the internet is also great fun. It 100% validates my life choices. It's silly, it's a little bit venomous at times, and I will share my gin with you. If you ask me nicely.”
With a multitude of glowing reviews and accolades from her past shows, Claire Healy is fast becoming known as a hot ticket triple threat. With sell out national and international tours to Edinburgh, Adelaide, and Perth coupled with Best Cabaret nominations in Perth and overseas, her work continues to equally delight and impress.
Surrounded by the opulent trappings of the Melba Spiegeltent and featuring all original songs including The Best Kind of Nasty, Bicycle Face and Dave (Doesn't Know We're Friends), 'Impure Thoughts' is the perfect (gin and) tonic during the Silly Season.
