Overview

Cabaret, Performance, song and dance – what more do you need?

The Working Girls of Soho takes you on a captivating journey to meet the women who built the beating heart of Soho and ruled its streets. Join ‘Ma’ Meyrick, the 1920s nightclub queen; the legendary all-female crime syndicate, The Forty Elephants Gang; as well as street walkers, Aristocratic Annie and Sadistic Cindy. Set from the roaring 20s to the swinging 60s and into the bleak 70s, this is an unmissable cabaret of comedy, characters, dance, torch songs and show tunes.

Following a sell-out Edinburgh Fringe run in 2022, Josephine Pembroke and her jazz band, The Soho Boys, bring a show bursting with glamour, nostalgia and hilarity to Jermyn Street Theatre. Featuring a piano, double bass and saxophone, expect an unforgettable night of sensational storytelling!
