Music: Je Regrette!

Je Regrette! is an award-winning character comedy written and performed by Sarah-Louise Young and Michael Roulston.

La Poule Plombée is a troubled singer, tortured by jealousy and unrequited love. Supported by her long-suffering accompanist, Mumu, this 70-minute show of original chansons weaves tales of obsession and loss with beautiful music and stunning vocals.

Je Regrette! was a smash hit at the Edinburgh Fringe, winning The Stage Award and an Argus Angel Award.

Other work by the pair includes Cabaret Chameleon – which introduced the character of La Poule Plombée to Rosehill’s audience in September 2018 – and Roulston & Young.

Special offer

Sarah-Louise and Michael will also present Julie Madly Deeply, a charming and cheeky cabaret show about the life of Dame Julie Andrews, on the afternoon of Sunday 21 July. A combined ticket is available at a special price of £30 when you book both performances together (booking fee applies). There is also a special French-themed pre-theatre menu available in The Green Room from 5pm on Saturday 20 July. Details below.

Sarah-Louise - a member of Olivier Award winning Showstoppers and guest soprano with Fascinating Aïda - and Michael - accompanist to Dillie Keane, Dusty Limits and Meow Meow - won Best Musical Variety Act in the London Cabaret Awards, Mervyn Stutter's Spirit Of The Fringe Award and were named one of Time Out's Top 10 Cabaret Acts of the year.

Their work has been shown internationally in New York, Berlin and at the prestigious Adelaide Cabaret Festival as well as across the UK and in London's West End.


Incomparable character cabaret
The Stage ★★★★★

Hilariously moving
The List ★★★★

An elegant, inventive and hugely enjoyable hour
The Scotsman ★★★★

Cabaret at its consummate best
The Argus (Angel Award Winner) ★★★★★

An effortlessly slick send-up of chanson... a masterclass in character comedy and yet another success for the partnership of Young and Roulston
Broadway Baby ★★★★★

The songs are all brand new and are a delightful mixture of the comic and bittersweet. Young's voice is as amazing as her sense of comic timing and finely nuanced acting
Musical Theatre Review ★★★★★

Top-notch music, comedy and storytelling... raises a Fringe show to a much higher plane
Everything Theatre ★★★★

Polished to perfection. Young's mastery of the genre is up there with the best and it is a real treat to be offered a show that is so distinctly original
Jonathan Baz - My Theatre Mates ★★★★

La Poule Blombée: Je Regrette! is done with finesse, pizzazz and professionalism at its highest level that can only be described as a masterclass in character cabaret…Not slipping out of character once, Young’s French pronunciation and tragic mannerisms were impeccable throughout the show, as was her French-accented singing – a solid proof of mastery in her craft
Cabaret Scenes ★★★★
