In the summer 2001, Clara Cupcakes invented the worst video game of all time – the unplayable tale of an octopus who just wants to find love in this crazy world. The levels made no sense, the characters were contrived and the final boss was, quite frankly, unbeatable. Critics called it “contrived and pointless”, “doomed from the start” and “the end of Cupcakes as we know her”. Distraught and alone, she hurled it into a garbage dump to be forgotten. Game over? Nothing stays buried forever. The legend of The Worst has grown. It can no longer be contained and she’s pulling it out of the heap, one tentacle at a time. It’s finally time to play…

After two critically acclaimed shows, two Golden Gibbo nomination and a whole lot of brie, Clara Cupcakes in bringing her latest award nominated tour de force to life with her usual big hair and manic flair. Press start and descend into the depths for a swim with your favourite vaudevillian vagabond.
