“Brilliant, incisive, talented and witty – a cool satirist of an untargeted breed”
Isobel Rogers seamlessly transitions between character comedy, hilarious satirical songs, and off-the-cuff stand-up
**** A mix of brilliant wit and clever song-writing … complex, funny, and moving.
Half-hearted waitress Elsa works in a cafe, eavesdropping on overly-earnest coffee chats, regretful memories of the night before, and exhausting tales of the rat race, as she struggles to make sense of a world that doesn’t feel like her own.
In this comedy cabaret, Isobel Rogers seamlessly transitions between character comedy, hilarious satirical songs and off-the-cuff stand-up to transform into characters who conceal their truth. With her unique lyrical song writing, Rogers finds deeper meaning in our everyday obsessions and aspirations, asking us to question what it means to be a young woman today.
