Rumpy Pumpy!

This event is in the past. This is an archive page for reference.

Barbara Jane Mackie's exuberant new musical, with its plea for the decriminalisation of all prostitution, opened in 2015 at The Kings Head Theatre to critical acclaim.

Based on a true story, 'Rumpy Pumpy!' has played Theatre Royal Windsor and British film company Carnaby Films are planning the film and UK Tour.

When Jean Johnson and Shirley Landels, two brave ladies from the Hampshire Women's Institute, decide to campaign for the decriminalisation of prostitution and to improve conditions for Working Girls everywhere, Brothel Madame, Holly Spencer, gets in touch. She has the perfect brothel these ladies could be looking for! Holly quips: 'You ladies make the tea and we'll bring the crumpets!' As the two conflicting worlds collide, comedy and chaos ensue in this very British comedy.
