Back at the Soho Theatre for one week only
11th – 16th December 2017
Following smash-hit sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the Soho Theatre, Triple Threat returns to Soho Theatre for one week only from the 11th – 16th December 2017.
Post-popular prodigy, Lucy McCormick and her Girl Squad, are back at Soho Theatre having just finished headlining a two night run of Jonny Woo’s Unroyal Variety at Hackney Empire where she devised some brand new original material.
United Agents & Soho Theatre present Lucy’s provocative and subversive cabaret show that retells the greatest story of all time. Triple Theatre gives the most unique twist to be seen on stage in the run up to Christmas.
Casting herself in all the main roles, Lucy attempts to reconnect to her own moral conscience by re-enacting the New Testament via a nu-wave holy trinity of dance, power ballads and absurdist art.
Triple Threat was commissioned by hÅb and Contact for Works Ahead, with support from Soho Theatre, Cambridge Junction and the Marlborough and funding from Arts Council England and is directed by Ursula Martinez.
Lucy is a very talented actor/performer whose hit show Triple Threat, took the Edinburgh Fringe by storm and had a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre in March and April 2017. Lucy was nominated for Emerging Artist at the Total Theatre Awards and was the winner of the TV Bomb Groundbreaker Award and Dublin Fringe’s Best Performer 2017. This year she has also played the lead role in the Soho Theatre’s production, Roller Diner, and has recently been announced as an Artist in Residence for the Royal Vauxhall Tavern’s Duckie nights in 2017. She is also a Research Fellow in the Department of English Drama at Queen Mary University London.

✭✭✭✭ The Stage

‘Lucy McCormick has the moves of Beyonce, the lungs of Christina Aguilera and the morals of a punk iconoclast… As a comedian she is fearless. As a performer she is reckless… She is one of the most extraordinary and extreme performers on the Fringe’ The Scotsman

‘Shocking, hilarious and profound’ Exeunt
‘Joyously depraved.’ Time Out
‘Triple Threat is a minor miracle.’ WhatsOnStage
