A new audio series for Homotopia Festival 2021
Pearl Necklace is a 6 part Round the Horne inspired absurdist queer sketch revue for the TikTok generation, celebrating the ingenuity (and ignorance!) of the LGBTIQA community past, present and future, recorded and broadcast in Liverpool as part of Homotopia Festival 21’ in partnership with DISTRICT & FRIGHTWIG.
Does it all feel a bit too… serious?
A bit… Heavy?
Well, set your handbag down, Dorothy – and take an epidural for the soul! – with PEARL NECKLACE an over-the-top (and under the table), 6-part camp audio revival – a piss-taking, ha-ha making deep-fill fun-bag of home grown vignettes, found clips and cursed musical discoveries in a Kaleidoscopic carb coma of auditory orgasmia! (Try saying that while eating spaghetti and meatballs!).
We’ve taken the FINEST (out-of-work) performers, tank-topped bum boys and derelict queers of this humble dockside town, given them roughly 1.5 glasses of affordable red, a hot penny bun and pressed ‘record’!
So, whether you’re an anti-masker or you’ve just PPE’d yourself….we’re going straight for the jugular with more double entendres than an Italian meringue! It’s larger than life, stranger than fiction and.. considerably smaller than it looked in the photograph!… Yes, PEARL NECKLACE is the perfect antidote to all that ails you!
