‘Funny, tongue-in-cheek, heartfelt and emotional.’
In the current social media-obsessed climate of self-promotion, Olivier Award-winning performance provocateur Ursula Martinez is up on her dirty soapbox, baring her soul (and possibly more) in an attempt to understand the absurdity of modern living.
Free Admission sees Martinez building a real brick wall between herself and the audience, whilst revealing her innermost hopes, fears, frustrations, delights and disappointments.
Insightful and hilarious Free Admission celebrates the inconsistencies and contradictions that make us human, while having a dig at the mess that is of our own making.

Fearless performer Ursula Martinez fuses personal experience and wicked humour to create innovative, challenging, highly entertaining theatre.
An award-winning writer, performance artist and director, thanks to the internet Martinez is probably best known around the world for hiding a red hankie. Her quirky, daring style of theatre has won her endless accolades and we’re excited to welcome her to Perth as our 2019 Artist-In-Residence.
While she’s in Perth Martinez will take part in workshops and talks and will also star in two shows – Free Admission and the newly-commissioned autobiographical A Family Outing – 20 Years On.
Gripping performances, big laughs and good vibes. If you’ve got a pulse, we’ve got something for you. Check out our Festival packages and discover your festival.
