CABARET – The Revolution Will be Sexual

Preview tickets for 16 November £8 – by phone 0207 503 1646

Following a sell-out
run at this years Edinburgh Fringe, deviant diva Bernadette Byrne and
her freakish accomplice Victor Victoria will shock, amuse and enlighten
the masses with their critically-acclaimed cabaret show.

Armed with accordion,
musical saw, a suitcase of Bolshevik sex puppets and an irresistible penchant
for the risque, the debauched duo will lure you into a strange world of
pilfered propaganda, intimate tales, satirically subverted classics and
their own darkly comical songs.

The queens of
musical smut
Musically adept, marvellously funny, genuinely naughty and utterly
in control, they leave the audience screaming for more

Named a Must
show by The Stage and nominated for a Total Theatre Award, these
TimeOut cover stars have won widespread praise from press and audience
alike, and perform on stages from London to Melbourne and around Europe
including the Groucho Club, the Old Vic Tunnels and the Udderbelly.
