Superlative storyteller and songwriter Joanna Weinberg returns to Camelot with her internationally acclaimed cabaret act about bags , baggage and the fabulousness of women – Pandora’s Bag . This show has been a critical and audience hit and has played everywhere from Camelot to Cape Town.
Hilarious subject matter includes Old Bags, Tea Bags Garbage Bags, Laundry Bags , Doctor’s Bags , Green bags, Bag Porn and the ethics ( or lack of ) the international handbag industry. The audience are encouraged to show and tell personal ‘bag stories’ to win a prize. Although the show is inspired by women, men love it too – as men have their own baggage.
