Having been writing together for over ten years, Heaven or Hell (or Highgate) is the culmination of Limits & Roulston's musical friendship. Expect songs of wit, passion, black humour & bawdy hilarity.

Dates and Times: Wed 12 & Fri 14 Sep, 21:15.

In an eclectic range of styles and backed by a dashing trio, within Heaven or Hell (or Highgate) there are songs that make light of the darkness, that will resonate with fans of the Tiger Lillies, Fascinating Aida and The Divine Comedy.

Described by Time Out as "The Trailblazer" of London cabaret, Dusty Limits has won recognition as "one of the foremost practitioners of the art of cabaret" (Scotsman) for his wit, charisma and vocal prowess.

Roulston won the Spirit of the Fringe award in 2016 in recognition of his outstanding work as a composer and musical director. His list of collaborations reads like a Who's Who of contemporary cabaret and includes Dillie Keane, Meow Meow, Christine Bovil, Barb Jungr and La Poule Plombée.

Their first album, Grin, was released in 2015 to great acclaim. They were nominated for the 2018 Green Room Award for Best Original Songs; the same show garnered stellar reviews at the Adelaide Cabaret Festival.
