A beguiling and jocular soire of magic, music and dance.

Lea has worked with composer Steve Blake, designer Tim Spooner and a group of
distinguished Welsh performers to create a wonderful work evocative of the decaying
world of music hall.
Besieged by an ever shifting and bewildering miscellany of inscrutable and enigmatic
props, the last sorry remnants of a legendary music hall family doggedly endeavour
to reconstruct fragments of misremembered routines and hazily recollected punchlines,
in a hopeless attempt to revive their all but forgotten Music Hall act.
(Ladies and Gentlemen) transcends language, is incredibly inventive and entertaining and,
perhaps most importantly, probes at the boundaries of performance and dance.
