- Morrissey-solo Calendar
Unhappy Birthday: Birmingham
Unhappy Birthday: Manchester
Amy Lamé invites you share her birthday. Morrissey- icon for the bookish, bespectacled weirdos of the world - is invited too. A seat is reserved for him... will he arrive clutching a bunch of flowers and a gift? Will he turn up at all? Cake, quiffs and craziness collide in a flurry of balloons and beer, against a soundtrack of nostalgic teenage obsession.
Unhappy Birthday cracks open the cult of celebrity and fandom; flays fat, faith and sexual identity; probes the pains of growing up; and cross examines a curious nostalgia for a time that may never have existed except in the bedroom of our imagination.
Co-founder and hostess of the infamous club/collective Duckie, Amy creates a culture clash of party, performance and poncing about in her new show.
Created and performed by Amy Lamé
