But, a serial killer is on the loose: one by one the bar’s cabaret performers are found with a sequinned stiletto-heel sling-back rammed through their hearts. Enter the Space Vixens - Jubilee Climax, Anna Labia, and Bunny Lingus – the inter-galactic, crime-fighting babes who zoom in, all glitter boots and zap-guns, to solve the crimes. By the end, Jubilee Climax and Saucy Jack have fallen in love, Chesty and Bunny are having a Lesbian affair, and Whackoff and a character called Mitch are dressed in rubber. Starting at the Edinburgh Festival, followed by a two week London try-out at Hackney Empire in November 1997, this moved into the West End, only to receive universally damning reviews. It managed a ten week run. 41 Photo by Sheila Burnett OH WHAT A LOVELY WAR!
