Experience legendary French icon Edith Piaf's life, loves and losses through the songs that shot her to stardom such as La Vie En Rose and Non, Je Ne Regrette Rien. Piaf's songs are punctuated with a collection of extraordinary stories of her life as recounted by Australian cabaret star Michaela Burger, who takes on a multitude of key characters, from Edith's half-sister Momone to Piaf herself, ably supported by co-star Greg Wain on acoustic guitar with subtle use of effect pedals. Winner of Best Cabaret at Adelaide Fringe Festival 2016 and Cabaret Award nominee at Fringe World 2016.
