“I’m Madame du Thé and I’m worldly and wise,
Oh the wonders I’ve seen with these elegant eyes.
So much knowledge is crammed in this pretty little head,
Pythagoras theorem, the Dutch language, 93 names for shades of red.”

You are cordially invited to take a peep inside Madame Fanny Du Thé’s Cabinet of Curiosities. Unsatisfied with the expectations thrust upon her as an aristocratic Georgian young lady to stay still and look pretty, Fanny has ventured across seas and explored the world. Now she’s back, and she wants to share her new-found wordly wisdom with you, you lucky devils. Reach into her cabinet to see what curio grabs you, and let Fanny enlighten you with her titillating, musical tales. Will you fondle the Frenchman’s finger? Will you pinch the cursed cherub’s cheek? There’s only one way to find out – come along and sneak a peek.

Riddlestick Theatre are a Bristol-based theatre company who play with past and present, fiddle with fact and fiction, and toy with traditional forms of tale-telling. After performing their medieval folk comedy, 'The Dead of Night in the Middle of Nowhere' at The Room Above in February they are thrilled to be back with this new comedy cabaret of curiosities after it's debut at Brainchild Festival. 

Praise for 'The Dead of Night in the Middle of Nowhere':
**** "The cast are talented, the music is jolly and the story is a imaginative blend of canny and daft. This play will leave you tickled pink." - Epigrram Arts 

19th July 8pm
£5 tickets available on the door or online
