Pandora’s Bag

‘Pandora’s Bag’ is a hugely entertaining show by songwriter and cabaret performer Joanna Weinberg. The show is inspired by bags and the women who wear them . Subject matter includes Old Bags, Laundry Bags , Doctor’s Bags , Bag Porn and the ethics ( or lack of ) the international handbag industry. The audience are encouraged to show and tell personal ‘bag stories’ to win a prize. Although the show is inspired by women, men love it too – as men have their own baggage. A volunteer bag model will also be selected from the audience- so for those theatrical extroverts, this is your chance to shine.

Joanna is an international cabaret artist who trained in drama at UCT and was well known in South Africa as a cabaret, theatre, tv and film actress . Her most memorable theatre role was playing Desdemona at the Market Theatre opposite John Kani in Othello, directed by Janet Suzman.

Joanna has written and performed 15 one woman shows and 4 musicals including the songs and lyrics for feature film Goddess (2012) directed by Mark Lamprell which was based on her one woman show Sinksongs.
