‘A feisty mix of theatre and rock gig… beautiful and potent.’ ★★★★ Times

THUMPING DRUMS, CLANGING KEYS AND VIOLENT VOICES. RASHDASH TELL THE REAL STORY OF CINDERELLA – A SINISTER AND SENSUOUS CABARET.

‘This show is presented with fierce energy and pizzazz.’
★★★★ Scotsman

‘A show not to be missed…you’ll be hanging off the edge of your seat.’
★★★★ A Younger Theatre

Two young girls play in a burnt out car with nothing to do. But suddenly their reality is turned upside down with money, fame, bright lights and flashing cameras.

In this bold, electrifying and lively show, two sisters tell you their story. A fantastical mix of rich images and live music will take you on a journey into their world.

Messy, noisy, playful and passionate. This is not the traditional tale of Cinderella as you know it…

Running time: Approx 70 mins
For ages 14+
Developed at West Yorkshire Playhouse

This is RashDash’s first show at Soho Theatre – they make beautiful, bold theatre. Find out more at www.rashdash.co.uk
