Back by popular demand, Lucy McCormick’s trawl through the annals of history in search of strong female role models is shamelessly funny, up-front in every way and deliciously vulgar.

McCormick’s unholy don’t-give-a-fuck attitude is very refreshing in an evening in which seriousness sits hand in hand with anarchy.
