Australia's own Kathy Lette will appear at Canberra Theatre Centre on Wednesday, March 4, sharing stories of writing novels such as Puberty Blues, raising her family and mixing with big names including Prince William, the Queen and George Clooney.
Kathy Lette's Big Night Out is described as "a psychological striptease, taking the audience from Puberty Blues to 'menopause blues', with tales of love, lust, men, marriage, pregnancy, childbirth, mastitis, sexist bosses, teenage-daughter-wrangling, ageing, toy boys, making the Queen laugh, hiding Julian Assange in her attic, tongue-kissing Prince William and Close Encounters of the George Clooney Kind, en route".
Kathy also reveals the trials, tribulations and hilarity of raising a child on the autism spectrum, from the time her son Jules came home from school with a sign sticky-taped to his back saying "Kick me I'm a retard" to his success playing Jason on BBC medical drama Holby City.
She will be in The Playhouse for an intimate night of entertainment.
"This is a fun night of feminism and frivolity. I talk about my books and my life and adventures, with clips and photos etc, to help explain how I became the deranged feminist you see before you," she said.
