This production is about many things; Expats living in Malta, strange customs, drinking rum (or beer) and laughing. It will offer you a drink, spin you a tale about a theatre show, sing you a couple of sea shanties, give you some unpleasant facts to think about and make you laugh.
Becca Biscuit and Louise Mothersole (is that their real names) live in England but they have a friend in Malta. Their friend wants them to visit and put together a show about Expats for the ‘European Capital of Culture Malta’. The girls have lots of stage presence, good voices and a lot of front. The show is full of interviews with the inhabitants, holiday snaps, dogs (alive and otherwise) and a few less than savoury facts (and videos) that they have discovered. The show is not what was wanted, the balmy island with its idyllic setting hides murder, mystery and corruption. They have to rewrite in a hurry.
This show is quirky, funny and a little unsettling!
