The character English assumed for the evening was that of a faded circus performer, Rosita Clavel. Her glory days are over, and her troupe is reduced to one accordionist (Ian Hill) and a (real) palomino horse which appeared in the second half. Through her (one-way) conversations with the horse, 'my Mathematica', English came to the conclusion that: 'We are all animals.' Big deal.
Most of the show consisted, however, of English addressing the audience as herself, either wearing a silver fish-tail dress and 3ft-long false eyelashes, or, in the second half, a shiny white leotard, ankle boots and buttock-revealing tights.
The purpose of this latter outfit was to allow her to sit bare-back on the horse, facing away from the audience in a pose reminiscent of cowboys riding off into the sunset at the end of a western - an amusing visual image but, like the content of the show itself, this display of bare-faced cheek had no bottom.Reuse content
