Postcards on the edge

Is an evening of RIOTously funny original songs, monologues and sketches loosely based around the British saucy seaside postcards of the 40's, 50's and 1960's.

It is written and performed by the duo 'Stoolpigeon' who recently won BBC Radio’s Folk Quest 2007 performing songs from this show. The show reflects the postcards of the era and is a hilarious & entertaining selection featuring an array of attractive women, fat old ladies, Vicars, Nuns and drunken middle aged men in compromising situations.

Postcards on the edge’ is not a nostalgic look back through rose tinted glasses to an earlier time. It is a modern, wholly original show addressing modern themes with songs written in the style of the period and before the birth of political correctness. The show is witty, poignant and sad. Yet it is also hilarious, laden with double entendre and full of audience partcipation.  This is the modern era of ‘musical comedy’

It might not be suitable for the very young or the very sensitive but it’s a great evening’s entertainment bringing a modern edge to a classic era.
