Now Here’s a Funny Story! by Mitch Feral
March 3 @ 7:30 pm - 10:00 pm
Starring Miss Airlie Scott and Mr Tommy Parsons
Directed by Jan Hunt of BBC Televisions’ The Good Old Days Fame
Funny Story Productions is currently on a UK tour, following sell-out London dates and hot from a recent 4 Star reviewed run at the Edinburgh Fringe.
A jaunty romp through the history of the Golden age of Music Hall, often delving into its dark underbelly.
Experienced music hall artists, TOMMY PARSONS and AIRLIE SCOTT take you on a musical journey from the very beginnings of music hall through to its 1890s heyday with the likes of Marie Lloyd and Champagne Charlie, onto wartime jingoism and the cross-dressing Vesta Tilley of the Great War. Not just drunken toffs, risqué sexuality, homelessness, decadence and war casualties across the Empire… but plenty of booze and sing along songs as well!
Written by MITCH FERAL Winner of The Offcut Festival Short Play Award ‘Inspiring musical’
