FIFTY Shades of Eve - Reloaded is the side-splitting, thought-poking, lip-biting sequel to the award-winning cabaret, Fifty Shades of Eve.

Vocal power punches, witty anecdotes and a fresh perspective on women – with spoof emphasis on the controversial movie, Fifty Shades of Grey – is skilfully delivered by the dynamite trio of Marelize Barnard, Niqui Cloete-Barrass and Faye Gatley (with a sneak cameo appearance by Colin Lyall).

The show, produced by BOOST Creative Solutions, while fraught with hilarity and parody songs, also addresses more serious issues like domestic abuse and female objectification.

Audiences can look forward to a great range of songs including golden oldies like Foster andamp; Allen’s “Bunch of Thyme”, cheeky cabaret numbers like Caro Emerald’s “That Man” and “Cain’t Say No” (from the musical Oklahoma), as well as modern power anthems like “All About that Bass” (Meghan Trainor), “The Voice Within” (Christina Aquilera) and “You Don’t Own Me” (Lesley Gore).

The show runs at Manas in Montmedy Road from June 24 to 27 at 19:00 for 19:30.

Patrons are welcome to bring snacks and take advantage of the bar facility which is cash only (no card facilities).

Part of the proceeds will be donated to the Yokhusela Haven for Abused Women and their children.

Tickets cost R100 and are available from Lindsay on 083 455 8007 or by sending an email to
