It’s cold. It’s January. People die. And so has Sarah M Anson. You are cordially invited to attend a memorial service in her honour, led by the Reverend Ro Hooley.
Do you like Christian Rock bands? No? Well, try not to snigger, please, out of respect for the dead. Everyone’s going to be there. Lots of people will come even though they didn’t really like Sarah, but because they love a finger buffet.

Leopardess are a sketch comedy group featuring Rosie Frecker and Rosie Abraham onstage, with Máirín O'Hagan and Sarah Anson behind the scenes. Their first full length show at Canal Cafe Theatre was all about saving the planet, and now that’s all done, they’re moving on to pastures new.
Rosie Abraham is fresh from the West End, having originated the role of Ethel in 'The Worst Witch' at the Vaudeville. She worked with Mischief Theatre in the cast of the Olivier award-nominated 'Peter Pan Goes Wrong’ on its UK tour and West End production at the Apollo, and performed in productions at the New Vic, Derby Theatre and the Arcola.
Rosie Frecker is an actor, director and thoroughbred East End geezer. Previous theatre credits include 'Oedipus' at the Almeida, 'The Knights From Nowhere' / 'The Bells' at the Park Theatre and 'Deleanach' at VAULT festival 2016. Rosie also performed with sketch troupe ‘Simply the Jest’ at the Edinburgh festival.
Máirín and Sarah write together as Queynte Laydies; their previous work includes comedy short films 'Bean' (starring Lou Sanders) and 'Sarah Surname' (starring Sarah). Their theatre work includes 'Lady Percy', which was a finalist for the American Shakespeare Centre's 'Shakespeare's New Contemporaries' competition, and 'Marge and Jules', which has toured the UK and Europe ever since it began at VAULT festival back in 2015. Their pirate comedy, 'The Life & Opinions of Mary Read, Gentlewoman Pirate', which explores gender fluidity in the Golden Age of Piracy, was recently developed at Wilton’s Music Hall. Together, they write sitcoms, and in their alone time Sarah writes revolting horror films and Máirín makes shorts in Ancient Greek.Book Now
