Bold, witty, and surreal, burlesque maverick Jeu Jeu la Foille fuses original poetry with the tormented lullabies and nocturnal emissions of Tom Waits. If you like sipping dreams through a straw, then let Jeu Jeu take you through the woozy mythology, skewed narrative and embellished truths in this Waitsian debut from a firm favourite on the cabaret scene. Expect gruff puppetry, beatnik burlesque, spoken word, and a junkyard orchestra of musical reprobates.

Review for Jeu Jeu La Foille: Frontal Lobotomy
It’s not often at the Fringe that you’re treated to a show combining old school original poetry, burlesque and puppetry. But that’s exactly what you get from ‘Jeu Jeu le Foille: Frontal Lobotomy’. It’s punctuated with scientific accounts of actual lobotomy surgeons and procedures, plus imagined conversations with John Waite –what more could you want? Somewhat erratic at times, the show can feel a little all over the place, but this is reflective of the subject matter. And, although the puppetry is crude, it is fitting within the piece and the performance is ultimately creative and engaging. Jeu Jeu La Foille clowns her way through burlesque and passionate prose – surely this is how every poetic anthology wishes it could be presented?

Laughing Horse @ Southside Social, until 21 Aug.
