Coming on like a rawer version of EastEnd Cabaret, The Ruby Darlings have been educating and entertaining their Edinburgh Fringe audiences about many aspects of female sexuality. When not talking about vaginas, Jesus, brothers and fathers, anal, dongs and poo, they offer guidance on self-pleasuring tactics and celebrate pubic hair through the medium of rap.
The female duo of Lily Phillips and Rachel Le Moeligou are supported by their five piece band in the world première of The Ruby Darlings Show at The Voodoo Rooms, Speak Easy until this Sunday. Despite their salacious subject matter, their respective backgrounds couldn’t be more different: when they met Phillips was working as a cabaret dancer while Le Moeligou was teaching small children.
Here they are, talking about a subject close to their heart. Well, maybe about two feet from their heart…
