How Here's a Funny Story!

 

Now Here's a Funny Story! by Mitch Feral
Starring Miss Airlie Scott and Mr Tommy Parsons

 

Directed by Jan Hunt of BBC Televisions' The Good Old Days Fame and Paper Moon Theatre Company.

 

A jaunty romp through the history of the Golden age of Music Hall, often delving into its dark underbelly.

 

Experienced music hall artists, TOMMY PARSONS and AIRLIE SCOTT take you on a musical journey from the very beginnings of music hall through to its 1890s heyday with the likes of Marie Lloyd and Champagne Charlie, onto wartime jingoism and the cross-dressing Vesta Tilley of the Great War. Not just drunken toffs, risqué sexuality, homelessness, decadence and war casualties across the Empire... but plenty of booze and sing along songs as well!
