Waitressing and Other Things I Do Well…
“Utterly beguiling… the find of 2011” The Advertiser
Gillian Cosgriff: singer, songwriter, pianist… waitress.
Fresh out of uni, with a performing arts degree in hand (its only real workplace value being that she could use it to threaten possible employers with a nasty paper cut), no job, no house, and existing on a steady diet of Pringles and vitamin water – she’s ready to throw herself into something.
The question is – what?
Following every tangent with meticulous precision, the show features a hilarious collection of original songs, as Cosgriff explains in her own inimitable way how she is manoeuvring those difficult ‘post-university’ years.
In 2010, Gillian Cosgriff won the Julie Michael Award for Musical Cabaret, the Hal Leonard Award, and the Sydney Cabaret Showcase Award.
