Fresh from a sell-out run at the Soho Theatre, London’s hottest queer musical-sketch-comedy threesome heads to Edinburgh Festival Fringe with ‘Sex Shells’.

Sex Shells promises to be an explosion of original music, surreal sketches, wayward choreography, and twisted rewrites of hits from pop, Disney and the musicals.

Cleverly critiquing gay culture and millennial life using a mixture of camp surrealism, musical theatre and satire, the Sex Shells tackle chemsex, trans rights, homophobia, internet misogyny, ugly shoes and the patriarchy – with biting wit and buckets of WTF.

Sex Shells emerged on the underground Dalston scene in 2014 before Jonny Woo spotted them and offered them a residency at his queer super-pub The Glory.

Since then their monthly sell-out shows have become legendary and they’ve wowed the crowds at Latitude, Brighton Pride, the Mighty Hoopla, Channel Islands Pride, and the National Theatre’s Riverside Stage
