Just when we thought we’d seen the back of her cagoule, Barbara Brownskirt returns to storm the RVT stage bringing her unique brand of comedy, anarchy and poetry in her showcase, Barbara Brownskirt’s Big Night Out.

The anorak-wearing, unlucky-in-love anti-heroine of the cabaret comedy scene, Barbara is the poet-in-residence at the 197 bus stop, Croydon Road, Penge. Tonight, she not only launches her 25th Volume of poetry: The Bus Stop Will Not be Sanitised, but asks you to unite through a live meditation on heartthrob, Judi Dench. Expect a rare glimpse of ‘Tiny Barbara’ in this night of comedic surprises along with special guests.

Audrey Heartburn is the sensational musical comedy creation of award-winning performer, Tracey Collins. Witness Audrey embark on an hilarious tear-streaked rampage in pursuit of real love, in the real world.

Plus, Sophia & Heleana Blackwell present WIFE MATERIAL
