Mother’s Ruin – Tue 17 Apr – Sat 21 Apr
Equal parts historical and hysterical, lose yourself in the company of sailors, barmaids and bootleggers in this darkly comic cabaret.
Mother’s Ruin is a raucous journey through 18th Century London, a few New York speakeasies, the Australian bush and the jungle of Peru. Discover a little more about your favourite drop, with this mixed up musical history lesson delivered with dry wit and “almost symbiotic harmonies” (Adelaide Advertiser).
With music originally performed by Amy Winehouse, Nina Simone, Martha Wainwright, Tom Wait, The Pretenders, Jessie J and more, Mother’s Ruin moves from misery to vaudeville in a moment, intertwining excess and prohibition, history and (re)invention.
Helena & Hermia: UNTUCKED – Sat 28 Apr
A forest rave, somewhere near London. Demetrius and Lysander have run off, deep into the forest to fight for Helena’s love. Their minds feel strangely…altered.
Helena & Hermia: UNTUCKED is a story about the relationship between love and power. A story told by two drag queens with lip-syncs to boot, offering an unflinching look at the oppression faced by women and queer people today.
This Is Me – Sun 19 May
West End actress Louise Dearman is not only known for her roles as a leafing lady but is widely acclaimed for her work as a UK, international arena and concert hall artist. Louise, for the first time in several years, returns to the Other Palace stage for an intimate evening of songs from the world of musical theatre, including a first insight to tracks from her brand new album ‘For You For Me’ due for release in April 2018.
Son of Rambow – Tue 22 May – Sat 2 Jun
Winter 1982. Two boys are about to form an unlikely friendship.
Will Proudfoot is a member of the Plymouth Brethren, forbidden from watching TV or films. Lee Carter is the wild child, school trouble-maker. When Lee blows Will’s mind with a pirate copy of Rambo: First Blood, this unlikely pair collaborate on a homemade sequel.
Based on the cult hit film, Son of Rambow is a heart-warming and hilarious story about two boys with a big video camera and even bigger ambitions.
