The three unlikely bibliophiles of Babushka deconstruct the classics, try to look smarter than they are and drink a lot of pinot grigio.

After performing to rapturous applause at Queensland Cabaret Festival, Melbourne Cabaret Festival and Adelaide Fringe Festival, Babushka wants to discuss some serious literature, sing some killer tunes and expand the membership of their bawdy book club.

Following hit tours of Happily Ever After and Doll, the girls are back with The Babushka Book Club to dive into the pages your favourite novels, be it chick lit, the NY Times best seller, or the well-thumbed erotic thriller on your bedside table.

Be entertained by a wickedly funny cabaret that features the iconic music of Kate Bush and Bananrama through to Billie Eilish, as Babushka turns your best loved novels inside-out and colour them various shades of grey.

Babushka will give Elizabeth Bennett a make-up tutorial, slap the handcuffs on Christian, and say ‘boy, bye!’ to Heathcliff.

These licentious literary critics, (who totally read the book before they saw the movie), demand a fresh look at Jane Austen and some more snacks. Pass the brie!


This project is supported by the Touring Queensland Fund and the Queensland Government through Arts Queensland.
