26 April – 21 May 2016, King’s Head Theatre
Fringe First Award-winning cult musical Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens returns to London in its 20th year, with original writer/curator Mike Fidler returning to direct the show!
In a seedy cabaret bar on the dark side of a distant planet, artistes are being picked off by a serial killer with a penchant for sequins… Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens is a truly immersive theatrical experience. The audience are the patrons of Saucy Jack’s bar, relaxing at tables, drinking and dancing while the show explodes around them.
Having delighted audiences around the world for over 20 years, including three West End runs, this award-winning musical is back in the capital with a transfer of its exuberant cyberpunk production fresh from the Edinburgh Festival. Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens lands at the King’s Head Theatre in Islington for four weeks of glitter-fueled fun from April 26th. Dust off your glitterboots, set your disco beams to stunning and join in with this all singing, all dancing, disco spectacular.
Saucy Jack and the Space Vixens was born at the Edinburgh Fringe as an alternative comedy musical in 1995. Created by an unlikely group of students, the show received the coveted Fringe First Award and has enjoyed widespread success across planet Earth ever since.
After a bombastic, exciting & innovative 45th year, the King’s Head continues its new artistic policy of being a crucible of new writing and critical rediscoveries, with the aim of being the best pub theatre in London. The King’s Head offers an unashamedly broad church of programming including theatre, musical theatre & opera, transfers to & from the biggest arts festivals in the world, & a trail-blazing policy of ethical employment on the fringe – if it’s on here, you won’t see it anywhere else.
