Lucy McCormick: Post Popular

Soho Theatre · 10 FEB - 22 FEB

Following her genre-defying smash-hit, Triple Threat, Lucy McCormick is back to crawl through the annals of history in this enthusiastically humiliating exploration of power and purpose.

“I love Lucy McCormick. I love her upfront anarchy. Her controlled chaos. Her unholy doesn’t-give-a fuck-attitude. I love the way she places a couple of gorgeous hunks in supporting roles in exactly the same way that women have so often been used in the entertainment industry for mere decoration. I love the way she reclaims the naked female body, not as a thing of shame but of joy. Post Popular casts a female eye on the stories of all the great women of history. One of the jokes is that there are only four of them. I mean nobody has heard of any others, have they? McCormick reminds us that it is still very much a man’s world, that a woman has to find her own heroines, wherever they may be tucked away, and she does it with stinging humour and unadulterated vulgarity.”


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

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
