My father lost me to the Beast at cards…

Having fled abjection in Russia, Beauty and her father arrive in a small Italian village to find that all who come here must play a hand with La Bestia. After her father makes a very ill-advised bet, Beauty must come to terms with a frightening new home, a surprising offer, and a most unusual Beast.

Based on Angela Carter’s short story, The Tiger’s Bride is a modern reworking of Charles Perrault’s Beauty and the Beast, for adults.Turning the conventional fairy-tale on its head, this is a story of desire, rebirth and embracing the Beast in all of us.

  • Collector of Tears

    Mon 26 Jun

  • The Class Project

    Mon 26 Jun

    This is a show about belonging. About tribes and families. About the place you belong because you were born there and it’s in your blood, but also the places you adopt; that you pretend are your home, and the places you change yourself to try and belong in. Rebecca Atkinson-Lord presents this personal show about class mobility, regional identity and being a Thatcher’s child.

  • Richard was on top of the world looking down on creation, to the left of (and slightly behind) Karen. Now he’s back... Get your ticket to ride for an epic concert of hit tunes and harrowing trauma from the smiliest control freak in pop history. A new dark comedy performed on a rainy Monday by Matthew Floyd Jones, the piano player from Frisky & Mannish.
