"If you are looking for something completely different, look no further than this show from our greatest purveyors of progressive working class entertainment, Duckie. A Christmas hit...shameless, rude, vaudeville entertainment that fuses Moulin Rouge spectacle with lap dancing and performance art. You will have seen nothing quite like it and it is well worth seeing. C'est delicious, c'est delightful, c'est divine. C'est tres magnifique!"
"Delicious bite sized burlesque"
"A deliriously decadent and divinely different evening...
C'est chic et fantastique"
"Picture a lap dancing joint, crossed with a cabaret lounge, then up the kitsch and campness a few gears, add some genuine artistic innovation and you?ll get some idea of Duckie's latest extravaganza. Enormously enjoyable concept cabaret...Impossible to resist...C'est Duckie. C'est Formidable!"
"The most fun you'll have in a theatre all year - guaranteed"
