Ok. So firstly – yes – we won! Melbourne is now the most locked down city in the world (at least in the Covid category).
So I write to you, still locked down, still working, playing, living and doing absolutely everything, on the stolen lands of the Wurundjeri People of the Kulin nation. It’s a privilege to be here and one that I don’t take lightly.
I also know that I am very lucky to have a garden, great walks (along Merri Creek) on my doorstep and a mostly harmonious home. Lockdown isn’t terrible. I’ve just had ENOUGH of it. Thank you.
Having been a long time supporter, customer and audience member of the Hares and Hyenas bookshop and Harehole performance space, I am thrilled to announce I am now part of the Harehole team.
I am working to produce a series of online events, as well as hosting and supporting some other streamed events, to get us all through lockdown. There is of course the added bonus that, by doing online shows, some of you in other cities, states and countries might be able to join in the fun!This Saturday 9th October 2021Down the Harehole, Online Variety with Lucy BestBook hereWith guest performers, the hilarious cabaret performer Luke Belle and Cabaret Royalty (in a non-monarchic way), producer, writer, performer and superstar Maude Davey, an audience dance-off, news from Hares & Hyenas, and a chance to hear how local performing artists have been surviving and creating in lockdown.

Whilst I am all those things this show is not about me. I’m popping on to do a spot for the brilliant and hilarious He Huang’s Fringe Show.
This 40-minute virtual comedy show consists of topical jokes and up-to-date shenanigans featuring He Huang and her guest comedians. Every night is different and in English.
