Following its hugely acclaimed premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and the recent West End run, Cautionary Tales for Daughters brings its razor-sharp musical story-telling to the Quay Theatre. 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!
