The world famous punk, street-opera trio The Tiger Lillies perform a legendary concert at the Archa Theatre in Prague featuring many of their most famous songs. The world of The Tiger Lillies is dark, peculiar and varied, with moments of deep sadness, cruel black humour and immense beauty. The unique, Grammy nominated, Brechtian street opera trio tour the world playing concerts and theatre shows such as Poe's Haunted Palace, The Ancient Mariner, Hamlet and the Olivier award winning West End hit Shockheaded Peter. Their songs cover all the dark aspects of life, from prostitution and drug addiction to violence and despair. Always with a touch of twisted humor and sharp irony The Tiger Lillies point an implicit accusing finger back at us: what on Earth are we doing, laughing at this stuff? Their music is a mixture of pre-war Berlin cabaret, anarchic opera and gypsy music, echoing the voices of Bertolt Brecht and Jacques Brel. The Tiger Lillies shock, amuse and entertain in a postmodern vaudeville way, with their inimitable in-yer-face shows, where no limit should be taken for granted. ‘'Martyn Jacques is a charismatic focus. Trudging between his piano and accordion like a man weighed down by supernatural dread – yet his voice is a molten cascade. The execution is impeccable throughout. Phenomenal.’ ★★★★★ Guardian Soho Theatre On Demand. The best shows from London’s most vibrant producer of new theatre, comedy and cabaret.

Right here?’ Growing up in the 90s, GG and her mates obsess over music, vaginas and witchcraft. But there’s a problem. Living feels too extreme. To be one of the good girls, GG learns to make herself numb, but at what cost? A bold, provocative and laugh-out-loud funny coming-of-age tale, Good Girl interrogates the experience of a young girl growing up in the 90s, a timely and distinctive piece that offers a vital new perspective to current dialogue about female experience. Sheldon’s inclusive and disarming form of storytelling allows her to candidly explore sex, masturbation and mental health and examines the dangers of defining ourselves by the opinions of others. ‘Cutting edge truth and hilarity from one of the freshest young voices of the century. Don’t miss Good Girl.’ Emma Thompson ‘Flawless’ ★★★★★ Voice ‘Contemporary, relevant and, most importantly, incessantly funny’ ★★★★ WhatsOnStage Written and performed by Naomi Sheldon Directed by Matt Peover Designed by Alison Neighbour Photography by Felicity Crawshaw Filmed by Daniel Frampton www.immanentproductions.com Soho Theatre On Demand.

How can a Truth be told? How can a Secret be spoken? Combining three gripping narratives, a Japanese soldier who refuses to stand down, the inventor of the saxophone and the personal story of a betrayed schoolboy, GROOMED pushes past sensationalist news headlines, and shows the lasting impact of abuse into adulthood. Presented at Soho Theatre in 2017, the play won the Broadway Baby Bobby Award, Fringe Review Outstanding Theatre Award and the Fringe Guru Brighton Fringe Award for Theatre at the 2016 Brighton Fringe. In 2019 GROOMED was powerfully reinvented as a film, shot entirely on location in a primary school classroom. Honest and provocative but never depressing, three poignant narratives are brought together to show how, when a story is told, it can save your life. ‘With exemplary honesty Patrick Sandford sheds much needed light on some dark places’ ★★★★ Guardian ‘A remarkable piece of theatre’ ★★★★ Financial Times Written and performed by Patrick Sandford (former Artistic Director of Nuffield Theatre Southampton) Directed by Nancy Meckler Music by Simon Slater Presented by Ingenious Purpose.
