After a sneak peek of the 2021 programme in December, the full list of shows playing the Garden Of Unearthly Delights is here.
Highlights include a socially-distanced yet fabulously fun drag brunch party, a reclined Hot Dub experience and a comedy gala.
Of course, audiences can look forward to some fine circus and cabaret shows. Club Briefs International's queen Shivannah and her troupe of boy wonders are back to shock and delight. 'Smashed - The Brunch Party' gives audiences the morning start they never knew they needed, with cabaret, drag and circus.
Meanwhile, comedy fans will be more than satisfied with shows from Lano & Woodley, Fiona O'Loughlin and Arj Barker as well as a special comedy gala bringing together a female powerhouse line-up including Cal Wilson, Denise Scott, Nikki Britton and Lizzy Hoo.
Some of the best in Australian comedy will team up to present double headers: Dave Thornton and Dilruk Jayasinha return, along with comedy power-couple Anne Edmonds and Lloyd Langford.
Strike up the band – the musical offerings at The Garden in 2021 feature 'Nobody's Business (The Bessie Smith Story)', Sophie Koh's 'Book Of Songs', 'RECLINE', Christine Anu, Katie Noonan and Michael Simic.

A late but very welcome entry is returning favourite Abandoman (aka Rob Broderick) with his latest show 'Hotline', as he calls on the help of the audience to bring musical improv to new heights, writing the next smashes for the likes of Ed Sheeran, Lin-Manuel Miranda, The Weeknd and more.
Following the success of its SA premiere season in 2020, '1000 Doors' has been reimagined. 'Door Within A Door' will haunt and delight the whole family. Also, 'Seance', 'Coma' and 'Flight' will return.
The Garden Sessions will host five gloriously talented local Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander artists. This year's line-up presents Eskatology, Warren Milera, Katie Aspel, Rob Edwards and Tilly Tjala Thomas.
"We are very proud to unveil The Garden of Unearthly Delights 2021 programme," Garden Co-Director Michelle Buxton says.
"These incredible performing artists are among the finest this country has to offer and I’m both delighted and thankful that together we can be part of the rebirth of live performance in Australia. It has certainly been a journey to make this season happen and there were definitely moments during 2020 when I thought we would not be able to proceed - which makes this moment all the more special."
