Totty Galore And The Expanding Suitcase (William Dashwood)

By | Published on Monday 22 August 2011

Imagine ‘Only Fools And Horses’ in drag and you’re not even close. Nothing could have prepared me for this bizarre performance. Frank owns a miraculous suitcase that expands to reveal a variety of “saleable” objects, including a blow-up sex-doll and “second-hand” condoms presented on a washing-line. But how does one review a sixty-year-old man stripping down to a thong, feigning heart-attack, and then proceeding to dress up as a woman (otherwise known as ‘Totty Galore’)? In a way, ‘Totty Galore and The Expanding Suitcase’ is brilliantly funny, but not quite for the right reasons. I’d urge you to see this just so you know I’m not lying, and so I know it really happened…
