CHRISTOS Tsiolkas has lent his pen to cabaret doyenne Moira Finucane for her latest show, The Glory Box.
The author of The Slap wrote a five-minute piece about the Garden of Eden on the condition that he wouldn’t have to get up on stage.
“(The piece) is dark and luscious and full of desire,” Finucane says. Drawing on Pandora’s Box, The Glory Box is a new incarnation of The Burlesque Hour, which Finucane premiered with her production company, Finucane & Smith, eight years ago.
When she announced she was doing this new show, Finucane says the phone rang hot, with stars offering to fly in from Europe for the show, at fortyfivedownstairs in Melbourne from June 7.
The sword-swallowing Miss Behave is arriving from Hamburg, dancer Holly Durant is coming from Paris and Ursula Martinez from London.

“It’s the venus fly trap of cabaret. Once you get in, not only can you not get out, you wouldn’t want to,” Finucane says.
