An absolutely disgraceful display of debauchery, belly laughs and tears. Join June, an eccentric, loud, foul-mouthed, pillpopping,vodka-swilling, lonely, horny, agoraphobic opera singer on a wild ride through fame, glory, love, New York, punked-up opera, ignominy, and obscurity as she recounts intimate tales and sings profane ballads to her stuffed cat Eugene. Written and performed by Tiffany Barton, director Helen Doig, music Max Porotto, costumes Cherie Hewson. Opera vocals by Lucy Mervik-Byer. London production starring Karren Winchester.
“Night one of the Fringe and already a surprise hit... In Tiffany Barton's small triumph of that name, the diva is June ... Barton’s play has a great grounding in reality, no matter how wild and hairy it gets... It's also beautifully constructed... an absolute zinger of a climax... an affirmation of life, with all its heartbreak, darkness and obscenity, as powerful and beautiful as you'll get anywhere... Barton is simply great as June... She has an impeccable collaborator in Helen Doig, a director with all of Barton's courage... “The West Australian"
