Feasting on Flesh **

We were given free tickets to see this show whilst drinking in the Assembly Rooms and it fitted into the schedule (although the plans for an early night were quashed).

Feasting on Flesh is a burlesque cabaret show performed by 6 Australian players, four men and two women. The theme of food runs throughout, and we are therefore treated to the sight of a naked girl being tightly wrapped in clingfilm, a fat drag artist stuffing his face, and an impatient diner getting cake stuffed up his backside.

Bits of this worked, bits didn't, and despite the nudity and bawdiness, this wasn't quite as shocking as the cast probably believed it to be. That said, it was free and an interesting enough way to spend an hour.

We certainly weren't hungry afterwards...
