Fringe Review: The Travelling Sisters Troupé


Presented by MILKE
Reviewed 17 February 2018

This mischievous trio, playing numerous parts in small sketches about various characters, guarantees an hour of laughs. There is contemporary comedy original music (mostly silly) and lots of costume changes. Much of the show ends up being played in their white Kmart briefs, but after a while you cease to notice. They do many of their changes on stage so we see the wigs and other bits being added as they chat with each other and the audience.

The opening song is about where they came from and why they ended up doing this and they have fun with everything. I’m not sure which of the many sketches was my favourite, the yuppies at the gym, the country family band, the Lollipop ladies strip tease or all the hilarity in between.

Nothing throws these girls, props in the wrong place, wigs on backwards or missing trousers, they just keep going. Adapt and move on, they have down to a fine art and they never lose their audience. If you are looking for a fun way to spend an hour then Lucy Fox, Laura Trenerry and Ell Sachs are just the ticket. A bit crazy, a bit smutty (in a good way) and a lot funny. Don’t miss this one.
