A Letter to Lyndon B Johnson or God: Whoever Reads This First

by Xhloe and Natasha (New York)

South Street is delighted to welcome award winning New York duo Xhloe and Natasha with an exclusive, UK preview of their brand new show prior to a run at the Edinburgh Fringe. 

Boyhood is all about spit-shakes, rope swings and playing soldiers. But what happens when the pretend becomes all too real and the childhood tales become harder to retell? Whether it’s stories around the campfire, letters home to mom, or a prayer to your favourite president, these two Boy Scouts really just want a turn to play the good guy... Scout's Honour.  

From consecutive 2022 and 2023 Fringe First Award winners Xhloe and Natasha comes an absurdist two-hander about the idealised American childhood and the boys it left behind.

Age guidance: 14+ 
Running time: 50 mins (no interval)

Please note that this show is performed "in-the-round" and is therefore unreserved seating.

"This unconventional absurdist gem is a true masterpiece"

"The choreography is as tight as their timing and they have a deliciously off-kilter energy"

"Rice and Roland’s double act is pure Fringe spirit: joyful, rebellious, and dashingly rough around the edges"
