The award-winning 2016 Edinburgh hit show comes to the Southbank for ONE NIGHT ONLY on Tuesday 6th September at 9.30pm. The creators of CABARET WHORE, JULIE MADLY DEEPLY and SONGS FOR CYNICS bring their new darkly comic cabaret ‘La Poule Plombée’ to the Wonderground.

La Poule is a troubled singer, tortured by jealousy and unrequited love. Supported by her long-suffering accompanist, Mumu, this hour of original songs weaves tales of obsession and loss with beautiful music and stunning vocals. Written and performed by Sarah-Louise Young (member of Olivier Award-winning Showstoppers and guest soprano with Fascinating Aïda) and Michael Roulston (accompanist to Dillie Keane, Dusty Limits and Meow Meow) and directed by Peta Lili, La Poule Plombée has won The Stage award for excellence and a string of five star reviews. Described as ‘utterly sublime’, ‘amazing’, and ‘hugely enjoyable’, this is sure to enthrall London’s discerning cabaret enthusiasts.
