 Carny Crip Liverpool based performance company, Fittings collaborate with Queer performance artist, avant-garde legend and general good egg David Hoyle in radical wordsmith Russell Barr’s new darkly comic play The Ugly Spirit.

What’s it like to be always together, always to be one of a pair, always to share the praise and the blame and never, ever to have a birthday cake that’s just for you?

Fittings’ new show takes a brand new play by Russell Barr, mixes in the extraordinary improvisational talents of

David Hoyle with the vocal skills of acclaimed soprano Denise Leigh, sets it all in the undiscovered places that lurk behind the scenes and invites a select audience to take a peek into the backstage world of the famous Siamese Sisters Jessie and Bessie Bellamy.

Take a peek behind the curtain, have a look through the mirror, let Glenda guide you and who knows what you’ll see. Let her lead you to the quiet places, lead you to the side rooms, the rooms that smell of sweat and stardust, where masks are carefully adjusted, the castrati gently clear their throats and performing dogs weep bitter tears…. Let her lead you to an audience with the Twins.
