A hit comedy and rock ‘n’ roll show starring a cult bearded drag queen is coming to Preston.Advertisement
FFS!! is based on the real-life adventures of Timberlina, performance artist Tim Redfern. It explores the complexities of modern life through a mix of cabaret, theatre performance, music, drag and comedy.
Timberlina has received huge acclaim for this show, and boasts Sir Ian McKellen amongst his fans.
Britain’s leading theatre reviewer Lyn Gardner wrote in The Guardian about FFS!!: “The show teases rather than preaches as Timberlina satirises middle-class and hipster concerns around up-cycling and wood-burning stoves.”

Timberlina said: “FFS!! is a frank and hilarious testament to escaping city life and embracing a stoic lifestyle of foraging and free-cycling. It’s a comedy show about giving a sh*t, about trying to be a good person in a world that cares less. It’s also about the taboo of eco-anxiety, the bewildering, exhausting contradictions of modern life, reaching peak worry and letting go.
“The show transcends boundaries and brings something unique to stage and audience whilst opening up conversations about ecology, environmentalism and contemporary guilt. It’s all beautifully framed in a collection of joyously profane and original songs.”
This free performance will take place at UCLan’s Media Factory is supported, and is supported by UCLan-based contemporary theatre outfit Derelict. You can find out more about Derelict and their autumn schedule on their website.
