You’re invited to an ‘evening with’ Lucy and Jen hosted in their own home with you as the audience – conversation, songs, shit like that. It’s a boundary-pushing, boozy night in. A souvenir album from a joyride through extravaganza, cabaret, reality, live art, theatre and filth.

Using (and abusing) renditions of songs from hit musicals, Number 1, The Plaza gives a whole new meaning to ‘dirty dancing’. Welcome to the show home, everyone.

A classic night out at Soho Theatre.

‘Number 1, The Plaza…strips away all the illusions of theatre with a vengeful fury. Then it wipes the audience’s face in it.’
Guardian

A Younger Theatre
