DollyWould (Sh!t Theatre with Show And Tell)

By | Published on Friday 25 August 2017

Would Dolly? Could Dolly? Who the hell even is Dolly? A country singer? A sheep? A drag queen? They may not have all the answers, but Louise Mothersole and Rebecca Biscuit absolutely love Dolly Parton. This multi-faceted performance pays homage to the woman herself, covering life, death, immortality and existence itself, via trips to DollyWood and the University of Tennessee body farm. Claiming that this is their mainstream crossover, it is a step away from their typically politicised productions, but it’s as clever, funny and oddly relatable as any of their previous work. Expect nothing less than their usual twisted silliness, from musical numbers featuring quotes from a Dolly Parton interview, to giant dancing boobs and Dolly the Sheep impersonations.

Summerhall, until 27 Aug.
