September 19th 9:30pm – The Black Cat presents Dusty Limits & Michael Roulston

Dusty Limits and Michael Roulston have been writing and performing together for twenty years, from Edinburgh to Adelaide to London and beyond. Heaven or Hell (or Highgate) is the culmination of their musical friendship. These are songs of wit and passion, black humour and bawdy hilarity, in an eclectic range of styles sung with passion and elan. Fans of the Tiger Lillies, Fascinating Aida and The Divine Comedy should attend. The show contains sex and drug references, some scathing satire, and a degree of artistic profanity.

“The Trailblazer” Time Out

“One of the foremost practitioners of the art of cabaret… If only the show was twice as long” – The Scotsman

“Cabaret with fangs” – Canberra Critics Circle

September 26th 8:30pm – The Black Cat presents La Poule Plombée

Award-winning musical character comedy from Sarah-Louise Young and Michael Roulston. Funny, tragic and compelling, Je Regrette! is the story of La Poule Plombée, a French singer tortured by jealousy and unrequited love. Propped up by her hen-pecked pianist Mumu, she weaves her darkly comic tale with beautiful original music and stunning vocals. Written and performed by the creators of Roulston & Young, Julie Madly Deeply and Cabaret Whore, this show was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, winning The Stage Award and an Argus Angel Award.

“Incomparable” – The Stage

“A delightful mixture of the comic and bittersweet” – Musical Theatre Review

“An effortlessly slick send-up of chanson…a masterclass in character comedy” – Broadway Baby

Tickets £22.50 + booking fee (tables of 2, 3 or 4 available)
