Mature audience (language, nudity)

The Fabulous Miss Rosie Bitts is an entertaining exploration of burlesque, which forces the audience to look at their attitudes about erotica, freedom of expression, feminism and their own body image.

Using burlesque, theatre and music, Rosie explores the sexual politics of female nudity. The show combines neo-burlesque, torch songs and classic burlesque in an entertaining examination of the fight against misunderstanding and censorship still felt by the burlesque stars of today.
