Affectionate musical comedy on the world’s longest-serving monarch, now sadly bereft of her consort of 73 years. As told by Carole Shaw, the show’s creator and star performer, this is the story of a thoroughly modern, fully empowered female role model. She is a woman heading up a country, after all. This powerful, colourful lady head-of-state finally reveals her “all” to her people - her undying love for her dogs, the men in her life, her single-handed success at forging peace processes, her secret passion for motorbikes, coming out at 96 as a song-&-dance gal. You are regally commanded to...

Mullarkey brings you on an hilarious, almost entirely honest, and wild journey of growing up as a Mama's boy in the west of Ireland, being a failed Catholic, and coming to terms with the old Irish tradition of repressing your feelings. Despite being strongly effected by Grand Theft Auto video games and their alarming absence of morals, poor Catholic Eddie badly wanted to believe in God and in God's plan. But alas, God had other plans for Eddie. Follow Eddie's European history of broken romance, the different versions of love at the root of Brexit and how to avoid having a child. A mix...

Get out of the opera house and into the opera house party with Madame Chandelier. She’s got jokes, party games, and she’s invited all her favourite opera characters.

PAUL DENNIS: IMASHINATION

Cabaret

The Temple Bar / Upstairs
MAY 23-31, JUN 1-5 at 21:45 (90 min) - Pay What You Can - Tickets not on sale yet

"Brilliant", "Amazing", "Fantastic". These are just some of the superlatives used by audience members after performances of this show at the Edinburgh and Swansea fringes in 2021. IMASHINATION is a non-stop conveyerbelt of showstoppers, interwoven with the darkly observed and cheekily insolent telling of a tale of personal discovery and transformation by a standup whose experience spans 3 decades. Paul's previous Fringe shows have earned 4 stars a-piece and his musical performances have attracted praise like: "This guy's voice is gonna knock your socks off" - Christian Reilly "Sim...

JUN 2-5 at 12:15 (60 min) - Pay What You Can - Tickets from £5

Legendary magician the Great Baldini tells his life story through a series of stage illusions, from his first trick on his 12th birthday to his career pinnacle rivalling the great Houdini. Each chapter is built around a very entertaining, colourful and theatrical illusion with significant audience participation. Whilst the magic can be a bit hit and miss and Baldini’s old trouper’s spirit is sorely tested the audience is often helpless with laughter as Baldini desperately attempts to hold it together and soldier on. The illusions are excellent (Baldini is an award-winning member of th...

Two best pals - 1 Scottish, 1 Irish. Having met at clown school in Paris, drinking red wine and dancing the night away, Saorla and Izzy are ready to share EVERYTHING with their audience. A combination of clown, bouffon, performance art, song and silliness, THE MUFFS BISCUIT BROTHEL is a colourful celebration of femininity and food. A delightful mix of seriousness, sexiness and silliness, the show explores moving personal stories of womens´ relationships with eating, sexuality and body image with lightness and absurdity. A glittery, surreal explosion of all things tasty, traumatising and terrif...
