PRESS RELEASE: “Love & Anger” Adelaide Fringe 2017



I am very proud to announce that my first show, Love & Anger, will be a part of Adelaide Fringe’s 2017 season. Accompanied on piano by distinguished Adelaide artist and pianist Paul Sinkinson, Love & Anger will be on for two nights only: Saturday February 18th and Sunday February 19th 2017.

Below is the official synopsis:


I am born, and feel to myself I am, a man. I cannot begin to understand what it is to be a woman. And perhaps I shouldn’t even try. But I want to. I want to learn and create from women: because everything I am, I owe to the women who made me.

When life unexpectedly breaks up with you, don’t rebound with Grindr. At least, not straight away. The best thing to do is to turn to the people who know you best. For CJ, that is the women who made him – alongside his friends, there’s Kate Bush. Beside his mother, his sister, there’s Tori Amos, Björk, and Florence Welch.

Memoir and cabaret collide in this tribute to women in music, as CJ McLean journeys through first love, “slutting it up”, waiting, and letting go.’


Tickets can be purchased via Adelaide Fringe’s website ( and retail locations, which will go live in December.

CJ xx
