Organised by: Halesworth Arts Festival
Venue: The Cut Arts Centre, Halesworth IP19 8BY link
2017 Halesworth Arts Festival - October 7th - 22nd. Songs your Mother never taught you. Following its hugely acclaimed premiere at the Edinburgh Festival and recent West End run, this razor-sharp musical story-telling comes to Halesworth. Imagine the playfulness of Victoria Wood with the satirical bite of Tim Minchin.
Told through live music, comedy and original animation, the audience meets Cherry - the Amazing YoYo Girl, an obsessive dieter caught between gluttony and vanity; Chanel - The Labelled Girl, whose criminal obsession with designer clothes leads to her grisly demise; and fickle Princess Sylvia who only realises she could have had anything and anyone when it’s too late. Arabella Dair learns that youth, good looks and cheesecake are soon gone, but cyberspace goes on and on. Be careful what you share folks!
A hugely fun and thought-provoking evening out for fathers, mothers, daughters and brothers!
