Hanson Leatherby dropped by this summer to take some photos of Lost Estate/Darling and Edge’s ‘Swan Lake: The Great Masked Ball’. Here are a few of my favourites:
Here are a few select pull quotes from the reviews our horror cabaret received at LHF last week:
‘Fascinating, funny and sad’ - 555/666 Horror Hot House
’A heartfelt, funny, campy horror show about a very real woman’ - On in London
’Sometimes comical, sometimes sincere and sometimes violent… The most enjoyable moments came from audience participation’ - London Pub Theatres
’The set is ritzy and eye-catching with sparkling silver streamers covering every conceivable surface, gold streamers covering a keyboard and a coffin in the corner Frances and her musical accompanist, Leonard, are immaculately made-up to look like the undead. Green skin, contoured faces, glitzy costumes. Frances dons glittering red lipstick; a pink fluffy dressing gown; purple fluffy slippers and blonde hair styled in the fashion of the Golden Hollywood era. The attention to detail is faultless.’ - London Pub Theatres
We plan to rework the show and put it on again soon - so, look out for it!
I’ll be joining the cast of Gypsy Disco’s ‘Pleasurehood’ from January!
