The Half Moon Shania

Presented by Burnt Lemon Theatre

The G Stringz are a punk rock girl band on the pub tour of their twenties. 15 pubs down, 150 pints downed – each! In one final bid for a bit of recognition, the girls have to whip out every trick in the book. And it’s a big, dirty, bitch of a book.

...We can’t promise your personal comfort or safety. But we can promise the prerogative to have a little fun.

About the company

Burnt Lemon Theatre

'Lets misbehave! Let's have a riot!'

Burnt Lemon Theatre return with their all-female, all punk production 'The Half Moon Shania'. As winners of Musical Theatre Review’s ‘Best Musical Award’ at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2018, this is a show sure to knock your knickers off!

Launching work from gut to stage, Burnt Lemon are supported by The New Diorama Theatre, having been recently named a New Diorama Graduate Emerging Company 2018/19.

The company are also supported by East 15 Acting School, as graduates of the renowned BA Acting and Contemporary Theatre course (Lost Watch, Police Cops, Fat Rascal). Their mentor, Jesse Briton (Bear Trap Theatre) comments:

"Burnt Lemon are the real deal. Genre-defying, terrifyingly-talented, and anarchically-inclined. A genuinely hilarious company with the passion and skill to tackle subjects that others shrink from."

Unapologetically brave and bold, 'The Half Moon Shania' sparks a conversation that deserves to be set alight.
