Stylish, sexy romp is frequently hilarious but not without emotion
If you want your ‘sexy romp’ boxes ticked, this is the place to do it. Dumbshow’s Roar is a stylish, exuberant tale of gin-soaked 17th-century wenches led by a ‘Moll Cutpurse’ channelling Beyoncé in full-on she-lion mode. Bawdy, slick and unselfconsciously anachronistic in their deployment of everything from Wild Beasts to a joke about David Cameron, they create a show that is frequently hilarious but not without emotion. Brilliant fun.
