Spring/Summer Theatre 2019
Award-winning new writing from some of the most exciting playwrights on the scene today
London’s hottest queer musical sketch comedy quartet are here to flame on your parade – and they’re serving sex, drugs and spangled satire.
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.’Hoxton Radio
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.
'Some of the most wonderfully gay things ever to grace the British stage.'
'A unique cabaret treat.'
'If you haven’t heard of the Sex Shells yet you probably don’t get out much.'
'Gay London’s most offensive, hilarious, and downright mental comedy act.'
'A shameless satirical show certain to have you screaming for more.'
