Ticket Alert: The Sisters: Return To The Isle Of Queef!

We last saw emerging comedy troupe The Feral Pigeons at Islington’s Hope & Anchor in June and, having performed at Latitude in the interim, they now bring their debut show – with a brand new ending – to the Leicester Square Theatre.

If you’re clean-minded/stubbornly British enough not to be familiar with the term ‘queef’, urban dictionary that shit up and you’ll get a rough idea of what kind of evening is in store. Subtle, this show is not. Absolutely bloody hilarious, it most emphatically IS.

Twin sisters, Evelyn (Jasmine Jones) and Prudence (Benedict Hopper) Petticoat, spend their days spreading joy and la-ha-haughter on the magical Isle of Queef. But their innocence – not to mention their lives – is threatened when they’re whisked away via the medium of conceptual dance (how else?) to dirty, horrid London, with the murderous Queen Madame M’zelle (Gabriella Best) in hot pursuit.

If you’ve seen The Feral Pigeons before, you’ll know what to expect: a riotous hour of mock panto-style overacting, inspired characters and deliciously catchy Gilbert and Sullivan-esque songs (if you don’t leave the theatre with an earworm of “Is It Necrophilia If It’s Just A Kiss?”, we’ll eat our best fur deerstalker). If you haven’t, well, this baby’s only on for one night (Tuesday 22 November), so booking is advisable – it isn’t one to be missed.

A triumph of pure fun and silliness. Your face will hurt from laughing.

The Sisters: Return To The Isle Of Queef! is on at Leicester Square Theatre, 6 Leicester Place, London WC2H 7BX at 7pm on Tuesday 22 November. Tickets £7.50. Book online or call 0844 873 3433.
