Triple Threat by Lucy McCormick
A TRASHSTEP-DUBPUNK MORALITY PLAY FOR THE MODERN WORLD
Following her smash-hit sell-out run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Soho Theatre, post-popular prodigy Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad brought their provocative, subversive cabaret retelling of the greatest story of all time to Hastings!
Casting herself in all the main roles, Lucy attempts to reconnect to her own moral conscience by re-enacting the New Testament via a nu-wave holy trinity of dance, power ballads and absurdist art.

More about the artist
McCormick’s frenzied underground club acts have grown without light in contexts including Duckie, Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, Dalston Superstore and The Glory and they are about to spill out of the gutter and hit the roof. In this hour long show Lucy invites you to join her in airing out some festering dirty laundry. Inspired by East London’s queers, queens, squatters and strikers.
With guest Entertainment Direction by cabaret and performance art superstar Ursula Martinez.
Triple Threat is commissioned by hÅb and Contact for Works Ahead, with support from Soho Theatre and Marlbourgh and funding from Arts Council England.
