Paul McDermott: The Dark Garden Unplugged

FRI 24+Sat 25 JANUARY, 2014

Presented by Brisbane Powerhouse and GNWTV

Paul McDermott, The man for whom the term ‘Hardcore Cabaret’ was coined, returns to Brisbane with The Dark Garden Unplugged.

Paul McDermott returns to Brisbane, the city of his birth, with The Dark Garden for two shows only. See TV’s favourite iconoclast and the master of topical comedy in a new intensely personal theatrical experience.

A show born of his celebrated Art Exhibition The Dark Garden, drenched in beautiful songs and wildly funny stories. Intimate. Epic. Beautiful. And strangely revealing.

At last a show from McDermott that runs the whole gamut of human feeling and a few animalistic ones as well. Paul McDermott up close and emotionally naked. The Dark Garden.
