Enter the jaded and threadbare world of Binkie and Maud when ‘The Martini Encounter’ launch themselves into The Vaults Festival, London from 22 – 26 February in Who Shot Wayne Sleep?
Never refined but always eccentric, this naughty and flamboyant duo celebrate their former ‘careers’ in what could very loosely be described as ‘showbiz’
Basking in their glorious if deluded cocktail of mischievous repartee and banging toons, they take us from Basingstoke to Basildon and Crawley to Crewe by way of Talking Heads and Queen via Scissor Sisters and the occasional Bonnie Tyler.
Accompanied by their ukuleles, they are joined by failed stage magician, Colin, tinkling the ivories. Binkie, Maud and Colin have each spent time at Her Majesty’s (pleasure). They met at the rehabilitation unit where they were taught to play the ukulele in preparation for release back into society.
Now, they have dusted off their dubious theatrical credentials and have recently appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe, Glastonbury and Latitude Festivals, Leicester Square Theatre, Pleasance and Bloomsbury Theatres and on UK tour.
