Dates, Times and Prices


Uma Gahd, everyone’s favourite unofficial auntie, brings you her one-woman drag comedy. Expect small talk and big issues: fame, family, feminism, and failed marriages. Stuffed with stand-up, lip-sync, and plenty of hysterical pathos, Uma tells the story of her life – from sneaking into bars with her childhood best friend, Margaret, to breaking into show business with her growing family. Part environmental theatre, part cabaret, and part drag show. Come and hear the word of Gahd! ‘A wildly entertaining way to spend 45 minutes.’ ( ‘Montreal's #1 Drag Artist.’ (
