Agents Provocateurs

Presented by The Magnificent Weirdos

Agents Provocateurs is a theatrical cabaret about some of history's greatest female spies.

Celebrating history, subterfuge and the women who did it all - performer Jo Marsh will brilliantly showcase the importance of telling women’s stories using an arsenal of storytelling, comedy, dance and song.

Exploring the lives and tragedies of six infamous femme spies throughout the ages: Mata Hari (WW1), Yokisho Kawashima (Sino/Japanese War), Nacy Wake (WW2), Mary Bowser (American Civil War), Mademoiselle Le Chevalier D’Eon de Beaumont (French/Spanish War 1700s), Noor Inayat Khan (WW2), Agent Provocateurs welcomes you to celebrate and relish in women’s achievements in history while being thoroughly entertained by a thrilling and polished performance.

It's the never-ending energy and commitment that I most admire about this performer.
