WHAT IS IT ABOUT?

'Weak-willed and easily led,' Mrs. Shufflewick was a red-nosed, drunken old cockney who liked nothing better than to prop up the Cock and Comfort with a large G&T. And end up starkers on top of a 29 bus. Tottering through the theatres, clubs, radios, televisions and graveyards of 60's and 70's Britain. Gay icon, comic's comic, housewife's favourite, music hall great and one of radio and TV's most original and brilliant creations, Mrs. Shufflewick presents an intimate sketch of creator Rex Jameson's gin-soaked back-stage life and his struggles with his past - abandoned by his mother - as well as his present - engaged in a series of abusive relationships to young working-class thugs - all interspersed with the 'uproariously funny' stand-up acts.

Running time: 1hr 20mins.
