As part of Derby Theatre’s Your Place initiative, a Clothworkers’ Award funded project to take theatre out into the community, the Theatre and one of their associate companies, Not Too Tame will present Cinderella: A Wicked Mother of a Night Out in three community spaces in the area, the Crown & Arrows, Shelton Lock; Ripley Miners’ Welfare and Sinfin Moor Social Club.
Not Too Tame are a highly acclaimed theatre company who formed out of a desire to create well crafted, entertaining and socially important work to appeal to working class communities….and Cinderella: A Wicked Mother of a Night Out is their latest production.
Taking the term ‘pub theatre’ literally, Cinderella is an outrageous site-specific show that takes all the best of traditional British 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 guarantees a truly great night out and will have you dancing in the aisles and laughing your bloody 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.
Artistic Director and founder of Not Too Tame, Jimmy Fairhurst said: “I’m thrilled to be working with award-winning writer, Luke Barnes on our first ever Christmas show, and I’m both excited and proud to open the tour in Derby in partnership with Derby Theatre. Cinderella; A Wicked Mother of a Night Out! is exactly that – a great night out, accessible to audiences of all backgrounds and interests and anyone who enjoys a few drinks, a sing song and time with their friends and loved ones after a hard week’s graft.
“We have taken the fairytale of Cinderella and created a whole live experience with an award-winning ensemble, re-telling the story for a modern day audience in real time, in a real boozer, a unique event that is not to be missed. This show is a culmination of several years of honing our craft, and the quality of the site specific and immersive production only matches our ability to throw a party. Be warned, yule laugh your baubles off.”
