Jackie Clune starred as ‘The Queen of Spleen’ in a sold-out season at Soho Theatre in 2002.  The show transferred to the Assembly Rooms Edinburgh, directed by Natasha Betteridge, where it had a hugely successful run in 2004.

'Highly enjoyable...rude and provocative..made me see Julie Burchill in a new light, as Osbourne's Jimmy Porter in drag'  

- Guardian

‘A cracker of a play...Jackie Clune captures Burchill to a T...hilarious’

- Spectator

‘Even Tony Parsons would probably accept she’s an absolute cult after seeing this’

- Time Out

‘What a serious pleasure it was to have Julie Burchill served up as a theatrical experience last night..Fountain is famous for his play about that dear dead queen of the purple quiff and anti-conformist bon mots, Quentin Crisp. This new work makes you aware just how much Burchill has in common with the late sexual rebel..high fun’.
