Rachel Tunaley: 12 Lies I Told Before 21

Rachel TunaleyAn unapologetic cabaret about delusional theatre kids, egotistical middle children and the larger-than-life dreamers who always felt they were destined for more, Rachel Tunaley presents 12 Lies I Told Before 21 at The Apollo Theatre – Speakeasy Theatre, as part of the 2023 Melbourne International Comedy Festival: 2 – 23 April.

It’s Rachel’s 21st birthday and as she reflects on her life so far, she realises one fatal flaw… she has absolutely no idea who she is. There’s only one thing she’s ever truly wanted: Fame! And every lie she’s ever told has been in preparation for her inevitable stardom, (or imminent self destruction).

12 Lies I Told Before 21 features a range of original songs as well as popular songs and takes you on an hilarious journey of self discovery, told through the many lies of a fame-hungry child.

Rachel Tunaley is ecstatic to be making her debut as a writer and cabaret artist but she’s definitely no stranger to the stage, so she feels right at home stepping onto the Melbourne International Comedy Festival stage for the first time.

As a self-diagnosed ‘music theatre kid’, Rachel knows how to ‘step, ball, change’ her way into her audience’s hearts and really tickle their funny bones, in a totally consensual way of course!
