Lizzie Roper in Peccadillo Circus

Directed by Leisa Rea

Revealing the fetishes and naughtiest secrets of real people in their own words, acclaimed character comedian and actress Lizzie Roper delves into the nation's views on sex. Characters as varied as an adulterous accountant and a celibate therapist inhabit the stage in this brilliant one-woman show, which wowed audiences and critics alike at the Edinburgh festival.

Nominated as Best Solo Show in The Stage Awards for Acting Excellence.

Like Creature Comforts with more sex and less plasticine. - Alan Davies

Performance comedy of the highest order in this hour of aural voyeurism from Lizzie Roper, seamlessly possessed by characters stained by their sexual experiences. - The Herald - 5 stars

Enjoying a stream of hysterical and sometimes downright smutty dialogue, the audience also got Roper's signature rubbery facial contortions, and her excellent ear for accents into the bargain. - Edinburgh Evening News - 5 stars
