Sex Shells is an explosion of original music, surreal sketches, wayward choreography, and twisted rewrites of all your favourite hits from pop, Disney, and Broadway. Chemsex, misogyny, trans rights, bodysnatching – the Shells tackle ’em all with filthy flair and pornographic panache. Expect Whitney Houston at the self-service checkout, Barbara Cartland on Grindr, Chicago on chems, sequinned feminist sedition… and some very chatty cigarettes.
‘Everyone comes out of the show skipping and laughing… you could literally have no more fun anywhere else.’
Rescued from a dank Dalston basement by Jonny Woo in 2014, they’ve since stormed Latitude, Brighton Pride, the Mighty Hoopla, and the National Theatre’s River Stage, and their regular sell-out shows at gay superpub The Glory have become legendary. They burned the Edinburgh Fringe to the ground this year, and now they are coming for YOU.
