A musical cabaret that dives into the world of women at work and jumps back out with sketches, jokes, stand-up routines and fantastic music. In a dozen musical numbers the company sings about women working for pin money, women working in factories and offices, women working in the house, women building houses. There are women talking about sewing and assembly lines and men talking about fish fingers and childcare.
Helen Glavin (Piano) composed the music for the show, collaborating with Josefina Cupido (Percussion) and Roger Allam (Bass Guitar) on the instrumental arrangements for the trio they formed.
‘Monstrous Regiment have produced a dazzling cabaret which is glamorous and funny… In its time this cabaret should have the same double-edged success as Rock Follies.’ Ann McFerran Time Out Jan 1978
‘Clad in strong reds, greens and blues this unusual company, partly pierrot, partly pop genre, partly band, sang and played into a half-dozen microphones… . It was altogether a lively do.’ Harold Atkins Daily Telegraph Jan 1978
