Jack’s Back! Where it belongs. At The Edinburgh Festival Fringe.
It’s hard to believe that it was 20 years ago that this cosmic experience was debuted and yet it still has the charisma that it had way back then. Okay the script has adapted a little but the slightly camp essence, the disco music and lurex remain intact.
The plot is set in sleazy night club Saucy Jack’s on Frottage III There have been a number of murders of cabaret singers at the club each killed by a sling back shoe through the chest and it is time to get to the bottom of this, cue The Space Vixens, the cosmic cops, to solve the crimes. But which of the shady characters is in the frame? Dr Von Whackoff? Sammy Sax? Mitch Maypole? Booby Shevalle? Even Jack himself? And what is the history between Jack & head Vixen Jubilee Climax? The story of hope, despair and even love develops over the two hours running time and full justice is given to the characterisations
The party is up and running from the off and never quits until the end. For the sell-out crowd it is the best one in town.
