Bea’s dreading going home after last night, when her Catholic Brazilian Mum found out what she really does for a living.

Featuring special guests from the community and a live score of Brazilian Music, Joana Nastari’s award-winning debut Fuck You Pay Me is a love letter to strippers and a surreal collision of comedy, poetry and live music exploring power, money and sisterhood.
