Back by her own popular demand, knife-wielding tortured French chanteuse, ‘La Poule Plombée’, has terrified and charmed audiences around the world, including sell-out runs in Edinburgh, London and the prestigious Adelaide Cabaret Festival. Winner of The Stage Award and An Argus Angel Award this is ‘incomparable’ (THE STAGE) musical character comedy.
Described as ‘a dangerously unstable mix of abandoned Norma Desmond, a soupcon of young gifted Streisand, some hefty dollops of Little Edie from Grey Gardens, all folded into the fragile body of a falling apart Minnelli’ (Gscene) she now has her own solo show: ‘Je Regrette!’. Finally.
'Young’s timing, accent-play, and gestures are comic gold – but Roulston on piano provides a great foil and the duo are mesmerising from start to finish... An effortlessly slick send-up of chanson, Cabaret Whore presents La Poule Plombée is a highlight of the Fringe, a masterclass in character comedy and yet another success for the partnership of Young and Roulston.’ (Broadway Baby).
