Michelle Brasier: Reform (Stamptown, PBJ and Century Proudly Presents)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2023

Michelle Brasier is willing to see the good even in those doing wrong against her. This is a show about wanting to be a badass, but also wanting everyone to feel okay. Brasier takes to the stage with a live band to tell the story of how a simple scam spirals out of control during lockdown. Brasier talks a mile a minute, breaking out into song with incredibly slick rhymes and a brilliant voice (British accents are delightfully wonky). Facebook messages between Brasier and her scammer are read verbatim and grant groans from the crowd at how sweet she is to this awful person. The thing that unites her do-good attitude and killer stage presence is an incontrovertible sense of humour.

Gilded Balloon Teviot, until 27 Aug.
