Company: Mary Bijou Cabaret and Social Club
“No one is innocent!” snarls the compere. At a cabaret based on the work of Alfred Hitchcock, these are the only words we can trust. Walking the line between hilarity and horror, the cabaret includes a singing Mrs. Danvers, extolling her beloved Rebecca; a Vertigo victim walking a wire in high heels; Tippi Hedren on a chinese pole, beset by Birds; Marlene Dietrich, prowling the theatre, looking for an accomplice or victim - she's not picky. With music by Tom Elstob (The Idol Rich), Bethan Cecil and Branwen Munn, the cast sing for their lives.
Mary Bijou Cabaret and Social Club pushes cabaret to new frontiers. Created by a troupe of international circus and cabaret artists, veterans of NoFit State Circus and the underground live art scene of London.
Fancy dress is optional but highly recommended. Come as your favourite Hitchcock character!
"This is beyond cabaret and into the realm of high dramatic art. A triumph."
HITCH was originally commissioned for the Wales Millennium Centre and Blysh Festival. HITCH is also funded by the Arts Council Wales.
