A battle between two competing children's party entertainers comes to a head in this comedy.
Sylvester ‘Silly’ String is revered as the king of children's party entertainment in the wealthy West London kids’ party market. That is until SPITTA, a Grime artist from East London, comes along and becomes the talk of Kensington playgrounds.
Starring Kiell Smith-Bynoe ("Ghosts") and Ed MacArthur (Musical Comedy Awards Finalist 2021).
With no frills to the staging, the amplification a bit irregular, and the ending less of a climax and more of the same, there’s space for the show’s qualities to be brought into sharper focus. But it’s still great fun...
An hour-long cabaret-esque musical with a premise so ingenious, it’s hard to believe it hasn’t been done before, String v SPITTA is nonetheless reliant on a hefty amount of participation from its audience.
Spoofs of children's entertainment is a rich area for comics...as they create adult fun in a seemingly innocent world. And now Ed MacArthur and Kiell Smith-Bynoe take an interesting new tack with String v SPITTA.
