Queensland Cabaret Festival presents...
Hers - Matthew Semple
Acclaimed cabaret artist and writer Matt Semple celebrates the feminine in Hers: a love letter to mothers, sisters, partners, and self-identifying women everywhere. Accompanied by a three-piece band, Matt tracks his journey of feminism through the influence of female role models in his own life and across the world. Equal parts funny and heartfelt, Hers explores a personal side of feminism through the music of pop, rock, and musical theatre.
Matt first entered the world of cabaret in 2016 with his one-man show The Gospel According to Matthew, which received rave reviews across Australia. He also writes annually for A Very Naughty Christmas (Understudy Productions), which has been a festive staple of the Brisbane Powerhouse since 2017. Matthew Semple graduated from the Queensland Conservatorium with a Bachelor of Music, majoring in Musical Theatre in 2015. He has since worked as a performer, writer, pianist, music director and cabaret artist throughout Australia.
“Exceptionally funny” — Theatre Buzz AU
“Sharp, clever and acerbic—almost more Minchin than Minchin.” — Weekend Notes
“Real, honest and upfront. Semple is doing what established comedians do best with a no-holds-barred approach to humour.” — Scenestr
