An interweaving narrative chronicling the antics of such diverse characters as: a transsexual taxi driver, a family obsessed with hygiene and toads, a fiery reverend, a carnival owner who kidnaps women into marriage, and a xenophobic couple who run a local shop for local people.

This surpasses even the Gent's classic Drury Lane show. Each and every scene is a gem. Happily the League don't just cash in on their big-hitters like Tubbs and Edward and Papa Lazarou (although naturally they get their moments of glory) but lesser-known characters who are equally loved by true fans, such as Lance, Bernice, Dr Carlton, Barry Baggs and Pop put in appearances too. The costumes and make-up are excellent when you consider the quick changes. Thankfully Chinnery's wig is a damn sight better than the Drury Lane show! The characters fit beautifully into the pantomime structure, especially Pauline, who seems to have been born to play the panto dame! There's also the League's signature moments of dark pathos, especially in Les McQueen's ghoulish departure and the return of Stump Hole Cavern's haunted tour guide Mick.
An absolute classic.
