Liz Truss’s The Traitors

29/05/2024 @ Aces and Eights Saloon Bar
Doors: 7:45 pm - 10:00 pm
Price: £8

Join our 49-Day Former Prime Minister Liz Truss, The Traitors’ enigmatic be-fringed host Claudia Winkleman, plus a bunch of other characters in cheap black hooded cloaks, to play the interactive game version of the hit TV show! 

Who betrayed Liz Truss? You decide!

Like Liz’s new book, “Ten Years To Save The West… field Shopping Centre (Shepherd’s Bush only)”, this show is creative non-fiction with a whodunit / howdunit / whydunit mystery at its heart. Can you help Detective Winkleman and her trusty sidekick fringe figure out who the real traitor is? Who was murdered? Was anyone murdered? Wait, is that Nadine Dorries over there? Along with a whole host of surprise celebrity guests proclaiming their innocence? Yes.*

Come for the Traitors-y bit when they all sit around the table accusing each other, stay to witness the evidence and decide who’s the REAL traitor. There will also be an interval when you can get more drinks, so don’t worry about that.

*Kind of.

Playing Liz Truss is: Nerine Skinner – an actress, comedian, improviser and deviser. Her video parodies of Liz Truss have gone viral online, leading to thousands of subscribers, and millions of views on YouTube. Since then she has performed her own solo show for Camden Fringe, Women In Comedy & Leicester Comedy Festival, and was runner-up in the prestigious Funny Women Awards for Content Creator 2023. Nerine reached the semi-finals of Britain’s Got Talent with comedy cabaret trio, ‘The Dots’ in 2022.

“Brilliantly talented comic performance”- David Walliams

Playing Claudia Winkleman is: Suchandrika Chakrabarti – who hosts Good News / Bad News on the second Wednesday of the month here at Aces.
