‘Hilarious, Shocking and Profound’

Post-popular prodigy Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad present a trashstep-dubpunk morality play for the modern world. Casting herself in all the main roles, Lucy will attempt to re-connect to her own moral conscience by reenacting the New Testament via a Nu-wave holy trinity of dance, power ballads and performance art. With trademark absurdism and enthusiasm, Lucy puts her best foot forward in the face of existential deadlock.

McCormick’s frenzied underground club acts have grown without light in contexts including Duckie, Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, Dalston Superstore and The Glory and they are about to spill out of the gutter and hit the roof. In this hour long show Lucy invites you to join her in airing out some festering dirty laundry. Inspired by East London’s queers, queens, squatters and strikers – come to the real royal Variety.

With guest Entertainment Direction by cabaret and performance art superstar Ursula Martinez.

Triple Threat has been commissioned by hÅb and Contact for Works Ahead, with support from Soho Theatre and Marlbourgh and funding from Arts Council England.
