Been crying into ya SAD lamp and on the bakerloo line just to feel ya toes?
Well worry no more lads, lasses, ENBY’s and beyond, cos LoUis, and his talented pals will give you the finest all-inclusive treatment at The Last Resort hotel in Costa del Waterloo!
Bringing Lanzarote to London, LoUis will celebrate his birthday in true working class style… at work.
With ASBO nephew in charge of pool aerobics, the receptionist with eyelashes longer than a camels leading yoga and LoUis more interested in the entertainment rep’s knickers than the song she’s singing, what could go wrong? Will LoUis get a birthday kiss? Will the new girl survive the day? Will the Kids club magician turn up? There’s only one way to find out!
Come for the sun, sex and syphilis stay for the staff drama! This will certainly be a holiday to remember…

“But most impressive are the drag kings, LoUis CYfer outstanding as Conservative MP and hypocrite Rick Whitman, nailing white privilege perfectly... they power the play with energy and excellent comic timing.”
