Holy bum! Thanks to Latest 7 magazine, the Scottish Falsetto Socks already have a ★★★★ 4 star review for Boo Lingerie, after just two previews (from which about 10 minutes of material will be making the final show). Check this out...
With the audience hypnotised into a state of suspended disbelief – pay no attention to that man behind the curtain – by their garish tartan theatre, the Scottish Socks’ vault of horror creaked open to reveal… two pairs of googly eyes and a lot of daft songs. Inevitably, the fright theme went out the window as soon as the Socks started arguing, fighting and, having established there were no kids at this afternoon show, swearing. The brilliance of this rough and ready performance lay in the Socks’, ahem, material (mixing rapidfire wordplay with groansome gags), as well as the sweetly ramshackle puppetry.
