Have Your Cake


A ceremonious opening with a cake. The failure of big celebrations and the celebration of big failures.

Inspired by a phone call to my mum, involving tricking a man into marrying me and ending up end up with cake all over myself, it was the only way I knew to tell the audience a small, sad thing. People listened in a way they only could if you’d well and truly embarassed yourself.
