Christmas with all the trimmings! Or rather, cuts.
Our fine-dining Tory government has butchered arts funding, cleared the plates of hopeful possibilities, and feasted on the working-class, neurodivergent, queer and ‘othered’ folx.
We've been left without a seat at the table. And yet, against all the odds:
We are surviving... We are serving... We are gifting... A They In A Manger.
Frankie Thompson, creator of smash hit CAttS (Guardian Best Comedy Shows 2022) and co-creator of BODY SHOW (★★★★★ Guardian) is teaming up with Beth Sitek, a producer of HIGH STEAKS (★★★★ The Stage) and supporter of John Travulva (★★★★ Guardian), in the form of Wardrobe & Sons this Christmas.
A They In A Manger is a new theatre experience invented by four live performance artists. It's a celebration of chosen families, queer community and survival of self, in all the ways we choose to express, perform, and simply exist.
An0maly: A transgender pole artist from London, spinning around the intersections of race, gender, pleasure and difference.
Danielle James: An Irish playwright and actress living in East London. She writes about balloons, baked beans, and being trans. Generally irritable.
Len Blanco: Drag king, theatremaker and musician querying social bullshit like the gender binary through singing, pointing, laughing and winking.
Vijay Patel: A performance artist, writer and neurodivergent access consultant. He crosses forms from live art, performance art and queer club/cabaret.
See the show on 14th Dec and join the ultimate festive party throwdown after. With Prinx Silver on the decks to make the yuletide GAY. Prinx (he/they) is a genre-bending trans queer DJ, famously known for channeling sexy & silly in whatever they do. Expect a blend of slutty edits & cheeky club bangers, topped up with reggaeton rhythms, noughties throwbacks, bass-y tracks, and DnB remixes.
A Camden People's Theatre and Wardrobe & Sons Production. Supported by The Roundhouse and funded by Camden People’s Theatre with the support of the Paul Hamlyn Foundation, City Bridge Trust and Garrick Charitable Trust.
Tobi King Bakare and this theatre deserve a shout-out for such a young, diverse audience. There is so much talk about audiences being full of over 60s and why, why can’t theatres get the crowds in to reflect society in general? Well, I’m happy to say that on a rainy Thursday evening, the theatre was completely full.
