SIX

All this time

They’ve been just one word in a stupid rhyme

So they picked up a pen and a microphone

History’s about to get overthrown.

From Tudor queens to pop princesses, the six wives of Henry VIII finally take to the mic to tell their tales, remixing five hundred years of historical heartbreak into a 75-minute celebration of 21st century sisterly sass-itude. These Queens may have green sleeves but their lipstick is rebellious red. Following last year’s sell-out run, this homegrown histo-remixed pop-concert musical by Toby Marlow and Lucy Moss returns to the Arts Theatre, London this Autumn. A phenomenal future is predicted for the ultimate Queen Revival.

Think you know the rhyme, think again....

Divorced. Beheaded. LIVE in concert! At the Arts Theatre in London from 16 January 2019 to 5 January 2020 book your Six tickets today!

Bitter Wheat

Bitter Wheat is a play about a depraved Hollywood mogul. It rips the pashmina off the suppurating wound which is show business, and leaves us better human beings, and fitter to once more confront the horror of life. Joining John Malkovich as Barney Fein, Doon Mackichan as Sondra and Ioanna Kimbook as Yung Kim Li are: Alexander Arnold as Roberto, Teddy Kempner as Doctor Wald, Matthew Pidgeon as The Writer and Zephryn Taitte as Charles Arthur Brown.  Our hero, Barney Fein, is a bloated monster – a studio head, who like his predecessor, the minotaur, devours the young he has lured into his cave. His fall from power to shame is a mythic journey which has been compared to The Odyssey by people who claim to have read that book. Funnier than The Iceman Cometh – more chaos than Richard III, and without all the stupid, so called ‘poetry’. Money, sex, power, you only need one of them to see Bitter Wheat. At the Garrick Theatre until 21 September 2019, book your Bitter Wheat tickets today
