LadyNerd: coming to a city near you

The terrific Keira Daley is bringing her Sydney Fringe smash hit LadyNerd to a town near you this week!

Keira Daley in LadyNerd

Indulge your inner (or not so inner) nerd with Keira Daley as she pays cabaret tribute to some of history’s greatest minds from Marie Curie to Ada Lovelace.
Daley ([title of show], A New Brain) weaves amazing true stories and real-life characters into a cabaret with inventive song arrangements which are old and new alike, but all in the key of ‘nerd’ – and with a few quirky rants on the side.

LadyNerd‘s smash success at the 2011 Sydney Fringe Festival has secured an engagement at the Edinburgh Fringe. Before it gets there, though, Daley will be visiting Sydney, Brisbane and Adelaide with a brainy plethora of nerds, nerdy pursuits, and the best LadyNerds that civilisation has to offer. Set to jazzy piano with a little video-game edge.

Catch LadyNerd in Sydney on June 7th, Brisbane on June 9th, and in Adelaide on June 13th. For more information and how to book, visit
