TOP TEN SHOW OF 2016
(Brian Logan, Guardian)
(Veronica Lee, Arts Desk)
Following a smash-hit and sell-out 2016 Edinburgh Festival Fringe run, post-popular prodigy Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad present a provocative, subversive cabaret retelling of the greatest story of all time.
Casting herself in all the main roles, Lucy attempts to reconnect to her own moral conscience by re-enacting the New Testament via a nu-wave holy trinity of dance, power ballads and absurdist art.
A wild, queer club performance from the GETINTHEBACKOFTHEVAN co-founder, directed by Ursula Martinez.
Triple Threat was commissioned by hÅb and Contact for Works Ahead, with support from Soho Theatre, Cambridge Junction and the Marlborough and funding from Arts Council England.
Age Recommendation: Strictly 18+
Running Time: 70 mins

‘A riotously messy and genuinely subversive theatrical hallelujah.’
‘Lucy McCormick has the moves of Beyonce, the lungs of Christina Aguilera and the morals of a punk iconoclast.’
‘A phenomenally watchable performer.’
‘Hilarious, shocking and profound.’
