Posted on: Tue 5 Mar 2024

Welcome to the tantalising world of Delinquents, brought to you by the seductive minds behind Delinquent Creatives. At the helm of this electrifying production is none other than Fiona Smith—a force to be reckoned with, a vision of creative brilliance, and devilishly sexy to boot.

From her captivating stage presence to her jaw-dropping introductory act adorned with a tantalisingly oversized hat in Fafi D’Alour Uncut, Fiona is the epitome of all things sensational so it is no surprise that I came back for more to see her other show.

Prepare to be swept away on a journey of unbridled passion, sensuality, and unapologetic decadence. The stage is set, the lights are dimmed, and the air is thick with anticipation—get ready to experience a night unlike any other, where fantasies come to life and inhibitions are left at the door.

Follow Fiona and her show girls and step into the seductive world of The Delinquents, where decadence meets debauchery in a night of unrivalled entertainment. Nestled in the heart of 1920s London, this after-dark Cabaret extravaganza invites you to delve deep into the hidden secrets of the city’s misfits and performers.

From the moment you step foot into the intimate setting of the dressing room, you’re transported into a world where the line between fantasy and reality blurs. The air crackles with anticipation as exceptional vocals fill the room (Eliza singing like a true goddess), accompanied by breathtaking mouvements (oulala), high-flying aerial acts (wow wow), sexy music (bravo to Emile the saxophonist) and the mesmerising allure of fire dancers.

But The Delinquents isn’t just about spectacle—it’s about peeling back the layers of glamour to reveal the raw, unfiltered essence of its performers. Behind closed doors, amidst the glitter and sequins, lies a world of jealousy, drama, lust, and passion. Every twist and turn of the show offers a glimpse into the lives of London’s Cabaret misfits, inviting you to explore the shadows beyond the spotlight.

With a cast of characters as diverse as they are all captivating, The Delinquents invites you to laugh, gasp, and maybe even blush as they lay bare their innermost desires and insecurities. It’s a night of unapologetic revelry, where the boundaries between performer and audience blur, and anything can happen.

Named “Best Weekly Cabaret” at the Adelaide Fringe 2023, The Delinquents is a show like no other—an unforgettable journey into the heart of London’s underground Cabaret scene. So grab a seat, raise a glass, and prepare to be swept away by a night of sheer delight and titillation. After all, some secrets are just too good to keep hidden.
