Taboo-shattering Weird Sisters leave art behind and go for twisted comedy in a travelogue that makes audiences beg for mercy, with extreme and unlikely characters in grotesque and absurd sketches. In Weird Sisters Get Around, this sexy but stupid duo insult everyone. Meet Ken and Helga Muller, cruise-liner cabaret veterans; Peubla and Guava, scantily-clad Peruvian peasants; Shine, an American contortionist; and Martin, a wannabe drag queen from South London.
Devised by Kath Burlinson and Alison Goldie and directed by Cal McCrystal, Weird Sisters Get Around is an eye-popping, jaw-dropping, toecurling and sexy show.
