A Slice of Saturday Night
Little Theatre Musical Book, Music and Lyrics by The Heather Brothers. Characters: 4 male, 5 female Unit set. The Heather Brothers' homage to swinging sixties music was a smash hit at the King's Head Theatre and it enjoyed a long run after transferring to London's Arts Theatre. Slice has a lot of lively original songs in it, 30 of them, each neatly perched on the edge between parody of early rock and the real thing.-- Boston Globe. A pleasurable, lightly satirical revel in sixties manners and music ... with bite, kick and hanky panky.-- Guardian. Full of such clever, self mocking charm that it's difficult to come away feeling anything but thoroughly entertained.... The real pleasure comes from The Brothers' shameless poaching of an eclectic cross section of famous numbers.... Superb comic pastiche and sharp, cuff link humor.-- Time Out. A musical pastiche that takes you spinning back to the swinging decade to celebrate the eternal embarrassment of teen age.-- What's On.

Lust
Aft er their smash-hit success A Slice of Saturday Night, The Heather Brothers have collaborated once again in the wildly entertaining musical Lust, which premiered in London at the Theatre Royal, Haymarket in 1993. Based upon Wycherley's Th e Country Wife, this rollicking Restoration revel throws off the shackles of Puritan austerity in a high spirited celebration of "the noblest urge bestowed on us." Ribaldry, romance and drama abound in the hilarious tale of Horner, a notorious London libertine. He charms and seduces his way into the hearts and boudoirs of society ladies, while practising elaborate deceptions so as to be trusted by the foolish husbands as a eunuch and chaperon to ladies of quality."
