Adulting: Tash York

With her wine-loving antics and witty repartee award-winning cabaret train wreck Tash York is on a mission to figure out the in’s and out’s of ‘Adulting’.

For those who don’t know, ‘Adulting’ is the process of doing ‘grown-up’ things. Things like holding down a job, paying your bills on time, cooking dinner (that doesn’t just involve putting chicken nuggets in the oven) and even doing your taxes. With big hair and exuberance Tash tackles issues surrounding womanhood, ageing, love, babies and having a ‘real job’, to discover what it really takes to be considered a grown up. WIN TIX HERE
