Award-winning musical character comedy from Sarah-Louise Young and Michael Roulston, creators of Roulston & Young, Julie Madly Deeply and Cabaret Whore.

Funny, tragic and compelling, Je Regrette! is the story of La Poule Plombée, a French singer tortured by jealousy and unrequited love.

Propped up by her hen-pecked pianist Mumu, she weaves her darkly comic tale with beautiful original music and stunning vocals.

‘Je Regrette!’ was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, winning The Stage Award and an Argus Angel Award.

 ‘An effortlessly slick send-up of chanson...a masterclass in character comedy and yet another success for the partnership of Young and Roulston’

'A delightful mixture of the comic and bittersweet'

‘Clever writing...witty lyrics...truly Gallic. Cabaret at its consummate best’

Absolutely one of the best shows I have ever seen at the Old Joint Stock, I and three friends had a fabulous evening. Both the Star and her accompanist were mesmerising. Visited Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre on 2017-05-26

Excellently well observed and executed pastiche of an angst- ridden French cabaret singer, typical of Piaf and Brel ( alright he was Belgian),both Sarah and Michael provided a very entertaining, hilarious evening. I even bought the CD and have been laughing all over again Visited Old Joint Stock Pub & Theatre on 2017-05-26

I can't begin to explain how fantastic Je Regrette! La Poule Plombee was! Razor sharp performances all round. The way the show is crafted together is truly incredible. Sarah-Louise Young and Michael Roulston are true masters of their art. The pain of the characters combined with the comedic tone set against the pathos is beyond words. Not to mention the interaction with the audience. If this show is on near where you live then beg, borrow or steal a ticket! I for one can't wait to see it again!
