ein abend mit ruby (2010 - 2011)

“They are all like Vera Lynn if she had been imbued with the subversive spirit of Resistance performer Agnes Bernelle.”

— What's On Stage

Commissioned in 2010 as part of the ‘Divided Skies’ season at Soho Theatre, to mark the 20th anniversary of the fall of the Berlin Wall, Ein Abend Mit Ruby took the audience back to Weimar Berlin. With poetry, music, and comedy, combined with teacups, tankards and the odd Weimar torch song, The Dolls brought a little bit of Berlin to London.

After premiering at Soho Theatre it was further toured multiple London venues for 12 months, including The Jermyn Street Theatre
