Songs about the desire for pockets in women’s clothing and feminist fuck boys all feature in the Fringe Wives Club’s latest show, Glittery Clittery.

All the songs and skits throughout the show feel very relevant and topical, as the trio of performers take us through their genius feminist cabaret. Glittery Clittery is an all-singing, all-dancing, all-laughing and all-learning extravaganza that everyone should want to be a part of, and when you're in it, it completely absorbs you.

The chemistry between the three Wives is undeniable and their enthusiasm is infectious, all very different performers but complementing each other brilliantly. Between Tessa Waters’ spot-on impressions, Victoria Falconer’s hilarious facial expressions and Rowena Hutson’s impassioned interludes, each of their areas of expertise are played to and it makes for a cohesively choreographed show.

Not only will you leave feeling empowered and educated, but also full of joy and with every song firmly stuck in your head. At no point does the show fall flat, nor does it lose its focus. The Fringe Wives Club hit the nail on the head at every turn, but never hammer it in too hard; a true feminist masterpiece.

Fringe Wives Club: Glittery Clittery, Assembly Roxy (Upstairs), 1-26 Aug (not 13), 8.50pm, £9-12
