Imagine if Christian Grey lived on a housing estate in Manchester? It’s a good housing estate mind you; it’s got a co-op, a 24-hour off-license and a KFC. And he’s a beguiling Mr Grey in that cross-between-Simon-Cowell-and-Peter-Andre type way.

 

This is the world of Maggie Muff, part Samantha from SATC (self-proclaimed) and part ghetto Barbie. And her tales are very naughty.  Indeed, this is not a show for the prudish and the audience at the launch of its Brisbane season delighted in every rude, crude but very funny reference, for Nikki Briton plays the big, bold Brit with an endearing tongue-in-cheek, animated appeal.

 

50 shades spoofs have flooded contemporary culture since the erotic trilogy’s runaway success. The show is a page-to-stage transformation in itself, based on Leesa Harker’s novel, 50 Shades of Red, White and Blue.  After sell-out seasons overseas and a record ten-week run in Perth, it is playing a limited season in Brisbane from April 30 as part of Twelfth Night Theatre’s commitment to making people laugh. And though the audience was treated to just a snippet of the show, laugh they did, often to the point of tears.

 

51 Shades of Maggie Muff looks like a great show to see with a group of friends (it screams girls night out) and a $10 per ticket discount applies for groups of 8 or more. This group rate also applies for Busting Out, which is returning to Twelfth Night in on April 19. Excerpts from the show bookended the launch with one of its stars, Emma Powell, belting out Mammories (a Memory parody) before urging audience members, gospel style, to get on board the titty train and leave behind their worries and pain.

Given their previous successes, these are shows sure to sell out quickly so book early to see what all the fuss is about. And after Maggie Muff, you’ll never look at choc mint ice cream the same way again.
