TUDOR ROSES

A Deliciously Dangerous Cabaret

Melbourne artist Aubrey Flood, with fabulous vocals and killer cleavage, presents ‘Tudor Roses’, a deliciously dangerous cabaret that explores what it was to be a Queen in 16th century England, and how that transforms into being a Yas Queen today.

It ain’t easy being a Queen, especially when your King is always green with envy over another woman. Lust, greed, divorce and death were just some of the delights included in a marriage to King Henry VIII. The wives who shared his bed were a paradox, with neither power nor safeguard and yet they had the influence to change Henry, and ultimately, the course of English history.

Today, nobody needs a King to be Queen, or more importantly to be a Yas Queen. Yet on her path to becoming a monarch of fabulousness, Aubrey Flood has discovered that the tribulations that plagued the Queens of 16th century England are still ripe in our society today.

Filled with feminism, nudity, costumes, and comedy, with songs by Cher, PJ Harvey, Donna Summer, Lady Gaga and more, ‘Tudor Roses’ pulls back the veil of a history predominantly written by men and dissects how women were and will be remembered.
