Cabaret: Westdal and Hayward

Two middle-aged women, who between them have three dogs, two kids but only one fully functioning pelvic floor. They’re a tiny bit cross and they’re not going to take it anymore, so they’re dishing it out instead.

Beth Hayward and Freyja Westdal have supported Dean Friedman on tour, performed alongside and written songs for 4 Poofs and a Piano, and 2019 saw their sell-out Edinburgh Fringe debut. Audience reviewers urged others to join in the “glamorous hilarity” and enjoy an evening with these “fantastically funny & incredibly clever” ladies.

2019 top three finalists for the Funny Women Best Show award.

Matinee £13.00
Evening £15.00
