Bea’s a stripper. Proud of it, too – though her life’s chaotic and her Catholic family have no idea how she makes her cash. Or do they? As Bea recovers from an epic night out, she discovers her mother and sisters have learned of her secret life…
Riotous, revealing and often hilarious, F**k You Pay Me is a roller-coaster ride into the city’s strip-club scene – with a woman who knows it better than most. Fresh from a sell-out run on the Edinburgh Fringe, this highly acclaimed one-woman show is inspired by writer-performer Joana Nastari’s own experiences working the bars of East London, but it’s no simple confessional. Tackling stigma, stereotypes, sisterhood and – of course – sex, F**k You Pay Me is a gritty, authentic and empowering celebration of love and solidarity for the women at the heart of this misunderstood subculture.
These shows at Rich Mix include incredible warm up acts from some of our favourite cabaret performers, and post-show discussions where you’ll have an opportunity to hear from members of the sex work community on the context surrounding the show.
