‘A Jealous Lassie’s Karma’ is a collection of mad cap poems, songs, skits and socio-political
observations, all performed with linguistic relish, by the ‘terrifically energetic’ Derek
Derek morphs from dead Glezga neddy lassie's into Marilyn Monroe's grotesquely glamorous
assassin. Using vivid language and outrageous characters, Derek explores squalor, sex, and
the gay man's idolatry of dead Hollywood stars: with punky songs he celebrates a broo
sanctioned Goff Mum and Cheryl Coles ‘singing’.
Derek’s work is fast paced, fun packed, campy, slapstick, high kicking, Dadaistic, with
undercurrents of Bette Davis and chunks of Dead Monroe thrown into the cultish Judy deep
throat Garland mix.
