That’s Why the Lady Needs a Ramp!


Come along and be delightfully discombobulated by Raspberry Ripple’s new show — That’s Why the Lady Needs a Ramp!

This is the first iteration of a one woman plus show! Honouring Stella Young through comedy and coincidence, Kate Hood plays an array of striking characters.

Meet Queen Esme of Collingwood, the eternal Aussie optimist. Share the passion of Kerry the coffee addict. Ponder existence with a surprise guest, hear from Kate Hood and her alter-ego as they tackle taboos.

Join us for this transformative glimpse of life in a wheelchair in Australia-2019.

There is a wheelchair in this show!

WHEN: Saturday 17 August, 6.30pm
