Tiff Stevenson brings her critically acclaimed 8th solo show Bombshell on tour across the UK in 2018. Bombshell premiered at the Edinburgh Festival’s Gilded Balloon last August and is her most political show yet. The tour starts on 1st March at the Cambridge Junction and culminates in a 6 night run at London’s Soho Theatre from 21st – 26th May.
Some say she oscillates wildly between Sylvia Plath & Beyonce, “like Belva Lockwood fused with your drunken Aunt.” (Edinburgh 49+3) Tiff says she’s very very funny and a right old smarty-pants. She also says she’s very, very, very modest.
So the world is on fire, a misogynist egomaniac is in the White House dropping his own bombs, unfortunately not metaphorical. Tiff came on her period the day the Trump presidency was announced, she can’t help thinking the two are linked… a big kick in the ovaries. Feminists are marching, Meninists are complaining, and somehow Piers Morgan still has a career.
Bombshell has turned out to be right on the zeitgeist with material around consent, how to complement women, and how Tiff might actually be synchronising with the apocalypse. She also tackles the increasing threat to reproductive rights, Creationists, and how Theresa May has ruined leopard print forever. In Bombshell Tiff ponders the knots the Left have tied themselves in and whether feeling politically adrift means she might have found herself bang in the centre, which according to Ayn Rand, is the evilest of all positions.
With the doomsday clock approaching midnight it’s time to embrace the blitz spirit and get ready for some BOMBSHELLS!!
