After 33 years of social and political satire with her musical cabaret trio, Fascinating Aïda, this old trouper extraordinaire is flying solo with a fond look back on her love’s labours lost. Dillie’s songwriting has been compared to Tom Lehrer, Noël Coward and Cole Porter, albeit with a generous sprinkling of unwarranted smut. With some brand new songs, grand old favourites, gorgeous odes of love and disgracefully filthy ditties, she will break your heart, mend it and then send it to the cleaners for pressing. And she’ll give you her recipe for chutney, too.
