The Invisible Cabaret Podcast about is all about mental health and creativity. This week, we are joined by a stalwart friend of Invisible Cabaret: the multi-gifted, sickeningly talented Guy Woolf. Guy is an actor-director-composer-singer-advocate; you can see why he tends to go by ‘theatre maker’, just to save on hyphens. We chat with Guy about feeling his way through a career in the arts, checking and redressing privilege, and how his dog benefits his mental health.
The Invisible Cabaret Podcast about mental health and creativity is delighted to start off the New Year by chatting to opera soprano, Bria Lovegrove (née Kelly). She shares her experience of how training as a professional classical singer affected her mental health, visiting areas such as OCD, perfectionism, self-medicating, the impact on her bank balance and the “grin and bear it” culture she experienced at conservatoire. Do the classical arts glamorise tragedy?
Our mental health and creativity podcast hits its 10th episode! And who better to celebrate with than another Invisible Cabaret stalwart, the sexy chanteuse, lipstick lesbian and baddest of asses, Dee Dee La Femme.
‘When people ask me “did you always know you wanted to be a nurse?”, I have to answer honestly: No. But I’ve found that performing complements, and even contributes to, my job in ways I never expected.’

We are delighted to announce that we will be performing a special, one-night-only show on Friday 15th June! We are even more delighted to announce that 90% of proceeds from the evening will be going directly to UK-based mental health charities, to support them in the crucial work they do for the hundreds of thousands of us who need it.
Show week is here, and we couldn’t be more excited! Here are a few details for this week if you’re coming to a show.
We were thrilled to raise nearly £1000 in ticket pre-sales and donations towards production costs via our Kickstarter. Because of this, we’re delighted to have been able to add an extra show date!
This theatrical company’s purpose is to break down some of the boundaries and stigma surrounding mental health, by exploring them in boundary-breaking, stigma-busting art forms. Read more about how and why here.
