Ursula Martinez is many things: an Olivier Award winner, a cult cabaret diva, a star of stages across the world… but above-all-else she is a provocateur.

Free Admission sees her building a real brick wall between herself and the audience, while revealing her hopes, fears, frustrations, delights and disappointments. Serving up side-splitting zingers and brain-bending truths, Urusla celebrates the contradictions and inconsistencies that make us human – all with her tongue firmly planted in her cheek.

An original cast member of circus-cabaret phenomenon La Soirée, Ursula is most famous for subverting the striptease in her outrageous magic striptease act ‘Hanky Panky’, where she pulls a handkerchief out of just about everywhere.

It’s a full-frontal statement and demonstration of honesty, vulnerability and power.‘ – Time Out

…funny, tongue-in-cheek, heartfelt and emotional.‘ – The Guardian
