Liverpool’s Royal Court has announced its entertainment for next May, programmed to coincide with the city’s hosting of the Eurovision Song Contest.

Jonathan Harvey (Gimme Gimme Gimme, Beautiful Thing, Our Lady of Blundellsands) has written A Thong For Europe—Liverpool Calling!

Lulu, proud owner of Litherland’s largest lingerie fabricator, is the biggest Eurovision nut. Conceived to the beat of ABBA’s tambourine, she only drinks Bucks Fizz and Sonia had to take out a restraining order against her in 2002.

She offers up her house and has been rewarded with a visit from Beryl, singing star of the newly discovered nation of Balkania. What could go wrong?

A Thong For Europe runs from April 21 to May 27.
