Martha, Josie and the Chinese Elvis at Park 90 Theatre

11 December 2019 to 4 January 2020Visit websiteBook tickets

Josie’s tired. Tired of the Bolton winter. Tired of looking after daydreaming daughter Brenda-Marie. Tired of working as a dominatrix to make ends meet. Too tired to celebrate turning forty.

But her favourite client Lionel insists on a birthday party and, knowing Josie’s a huge Elvis fan, invites a very special guest. Just as hips start swinging, somebody no-one expected arrives and skeletons come tumbling out of the closet…
 
Writer of Humble Boy (National Theatre) Charlotte Jones’ hilarious and heartfelt comedy about finding a place to fit in won the 1998 Pearson Best Play Award and, on its twenty-first anniversary, receives its first ever London production, from comedy specialists Signal Theatre Company.
 
Quirky and kinky, and with a rocking Elvis soundtrack*, this sweet yet saucy celebration of life’s outsiders is the perfect ‘adults only’ alternative Christmas treat. (*NB: is NOT a musical!)

'Coarsely funny… mixes life lessons with verbal zingers… enjoyably slick and snappy… conspicuously well cast and played' ★★★★ The Times
Praise for Signal Theatre Company's production of Shang-a-Lang by Catherine Johnson
