An all-female comedy quartet out to air their dirty laundry.


Once upon a time there was a Lady. She didn’t sign up for it, but she was assigned a Cramp. Little did she know that this Cramp would end up defining her experience of the world around her. In this quirky cabaret, Lady and the Cramp set out to unravel the complexities of their bittersweet relationship through song, sketch-comedy and spoken word. From contraceptive pills to legislative bills, Polly Clamorous mix melody and the macabre, blurring the lines between the gorgeous and the gruesome, the sexy and the slimy, the public and the private.

Lady and the Cramp blurs the line between the gorgeous and the gruesome, the sexy and the slimy, the public and the private. Will Lady come to love her Cramp? Will they emerge, triumphant in the era of mansplaining, MeToo and the conformist pressures of anal bleaching? To get you ripe and ready for a night out on the town, come and find out.

"Their songs are up-to-date explorations of millennial female experience, from the shame of STDs to anxiety about vulvas. There are witty one-liners sung so sweetly you’d think it was a rearrangement of Dorris Day, until you tune into the lyrics." 
T Snelling Edfringe Review

"The light and cheery gives way to the raw rage which 21st century women normally cover, conceal, or just can’t allow themselves to feel constantly." 
T Snelling Edfringe Review

"Within a mere hour, Polly Clamorous use comedy to take us on a liberating journey, moving the audience from stitches of laughter - through their retelling of the awkward realities of sex - to sobering tears, as they confront us with the graver truths lived by women today." 
J Loram EdFringe Review

"This is the kind of show which made me feel both great camaraderie, and horribly angry, about being female."

ABOUT ACCALIA ARTS FESTIVAL
