What is it?
Fancy something a bit different to the usual pantomimes this Christmas? This December, Not Too Tame presents Cinderella: A Wicked Mother of a Night Out! combining panto with a trip to the pub after. A site-specific Cinderella, promising a first-rate night out for theatre fans and newcomers alike.
Taking the term ‘pub theatre’ literally, Cinderella is an outrageous site-specific show that takes the best of traditional panto and tops it off with a pint. Penned by Luke Barnes (All We Ever Wanted Was Everything), this knees up of a night out brings all the characters you know, love and hate, to pull your mates, spill your pints and pour their hearts out on the Karaoke.
Crammed with live music, bingo, massaoke, and a touch of midnight magic, Cinderella aims to have you dancing in the aisles and laughing your baubles off. Think Tarantino meets Shameless, meets ELF… all in a real, local boozer.
Grab a pint. Take a seat. And get a load of this immersive Christmas experience:
4th – 8th December at One Hundred & Two Social Club, Derby
10th, 11th & 15th December at Bethnal Green Working Men’s Club, London
13th – 14th December at London Welsh Centre, London
16th December at Yates, Reading
18th – 22nd December at Welcome Inn, Ordsall
Writer Luke Barnes’ first play, Chapel Street, was a hit at the Edinburgh Festival before transferring to London’s Bush Theatre, the Liverpool Playhouse and embarking on a UK Tour. Barnes became writer on attachment to the Liverpool Everyman and Playhouse and Soho Theatre where his work began to move towards a culture of attracting new, untraditional, audiences.
Not Too Tame came out of a desire to create well crafted, entertaining and socially important work that appealed to a working class community. Money, subject matter and a misrepresentation of the working class are all factors that have helped distance people from the arts; challenging this is a key driving force in their work today. Of all previous Not Too Tame theatre shows, 26% of attendees were first time theatre goers.
