It’s been in the oven for over a year and finally Outburst is excited to present the premiere of a delicious new Australian – Irish queer collaboration!

Cake Daddy is about being fat in a fat-phobic world. An interactive banquet featuring Outburst favourite Ross Anderson-Doherty, this joyfully unapologetic show plunges you belly deep inside one gorgeous queer man’s experience of fat/ness, laying bare the fortitude and fabulosity required to step into the world as a fat person today.
It’s about owning the word fat and not apologising for taking up space. Ross takes us on a very personal journey to a queer and fat-positive response to body shaming and angrily, uproariously, unpacks the intricacies of fatness through brilliant original songs, conversation and cake.

wreckedAllprods’ Alyson Campbell and Lachlan Philpott (GL RY/WhoLE, The Trouble with Harry, Bison) team up with long-time collaborator Ross and composer Marty Byrne to shake, slap and bake this chequered Battenberg of a show.
Cake Daddy’s gonna make your cake RISE.
