Lucy McCormick: Post Popular

Lucy McCormick: Post Popular

Soho Theatre · 10 FEB - 22 FEB

Following her genre-defying smash-hit, Triple Threat, Lucy McCormick is back

“One of the biggest hits of the last Edinburgh Fringe, ‘irreverent’ doesn’t quite cover it. A riotous mix of music, dancing and theatre – this time Lucy is in search of feminist heroes from history and is rightfully pissed off that there are so few.”

“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. The joke, a stinging one, is that she can only find four women because, as McCormick makes clear, it’s still a man’s world and one in which they control whose stories do and do not make it into the history books. McCormick’s unholy don’t-give-a-fuck attitude is very refreshing in an evening in which seriousness sits hand in hand with anarchy.”

Overview

Lucy is crawling through the annals of history in this enthusiastically humiliating exploration of power and purpose.

Joined by her friends-with-benefits, Lucy is back with her trademark concoction of dance, song, absurdist art and minor breakdowns.

Age Restriction: 18+

Critic reviews

Lucy McCormick creates a theme park thrill ride out of feminist icons, gross-out extremes and kick-ass song and dance

The Stage

McCormick rips up the rulebook with Post Popular, a hedonistic history lesson that is trashy, volatile ... and honest

The Guardian

As ever with such a talented performer, it’s confrontational and shocking — but mostly fun

Evening Standard

Post Popular is not for everyone. It pushes the audience to its limit. There will be walkouts. But, if you can hack it, you will be fixated, mesmerised and stupefied

Broadway World

It’s glorious to see a performer with such formidable talent using it for utter fuckery
