How Eva Von Schnippisch Won WWII

Presented by Eva Von Schnippisch

The WWII Official Secrecy Act is over – and Eva is ready to set the record straight. Germany’s greatest cabaret star is transformed into Britain’s No.1 spy. After a hair-raising mission in occupied France and her explosive death-defying getaway in Russia...Eva is given the toughest mission of all: infiltrate to the very top! Back in her Mutti-land Germany she embarks on a love affair to end ALL love affairs.

Eva tells a "hilariously filthy and perfectly delivered" action-packed story of love, betrayal, Frankfurters, the ‘other’ Eva... and de-bunks the bunker story once and for all in a "joyful night of hilarious anti-fascist feminist propaganda”. It’s time to re-write the history books!


Calling ALL Mums, Dads and carers of the kids!

The KID-FRIENDLY Eva! You’ve asked...and we’re delivering! In a change to the advertised programme we are swapping out the saucy bits and giving you double entendres, physical comedy, slapstick...and lots and LOTS of silliness!

Saturday 9th March - 4:50pm
