Shades of Mediocrity, 2019 - 20
Lily and Maeve are well on their way to becoming just like their idols, Simon & Garfunkel.
Admittedly, they’re not American, they’re not men and they’re not musical geniuses.
But they’re not going to let a few technicalities get in the way of their dreams.
Shades of Mediocrity is a ‘sparkling and provocative’, ‘superbly funny’ new show about
friendship, artistic angst and niche musical fandom.
Inspired by music documentaries, Stars in their Eyes, Comic Sans and polo-neck jumpers, Good
Friends Lily and Maeve attempt to lip-sync, dance and juggle their way through this riotous
examination of fame and failure.
