Lifelong allergy sufferer Uma Dobia knows a thing or two about navigating the world while looking for danger in every crumb.
And now she's bringing that intolerance to Adelaide Fringe hot on the heels of her smash premiere at Melbourne Fringe 2023.
In her playful, original cabaret Intolerant, Uma uses her genre-hopping vocal, storytelling and comedic skills to confront her obsessions with chocolate and popcorn, the difficulties of explaining allergies at dinner parties, and how to date without having an allergic reaction to semen (yes, really) — until Crohn’s disease comes along to crash the party.
With a soundtrack that includes original songs, parodies ofoperatic arias, highlights from previous performances in Pirates of Penzance, as well as her favourite Wiggles songs, the music of Intolerant showcases Uma’s versatility across multiple musical and performance styles and puts her comedic talents in the spotlight.
