Historians Call Us Roommates: A Queer Cabaret

Book tickets

Nuns, pirates and spies, oh my!

Comedian Chelsea Heaney battles queer erasure by exploring centuries of queer stories of people you won’t believe you haven’t heard of or had no idea were queer! From polyamorous gothic queens, to bisexual, convent burning nuns, there are many shades of gay to enjoy!

About the Artist

Chelsea Heaney is a queer comedian on the rise. A 2023 RAW Comedy state finalist, Chelsea has performed and produced shows for the Adelaide Fringe Festival and Melbourne Cabaret Festival, and in 2024 will be making her Midsumma Festival Debut. Her signature awkwardly honest humour keeps audiences in stitches. History has been cis-straight-white-washed and Chelsea is here to set the record… gay!
