The Cholmondeleys and The Featherstonehaughs

Artistic Director: Lea Anderson

We worked with Lea to develop her new fantastic show Ladies & Gentlemen.

Besieged by an ever shifting and bewildering miscellany of inscrutable and enigmatic props, the last sorry remnants of a legendary music hall family doggedly endeavour to reconstruct fragments of misremembered routines and hazily recollected punch-lines, in a hopeless attempt to revive their all but forgotten Music Hall act.

Touring 2016.
