Babushka present a cute and creepy cabaret all about our first childhood BFF, the doll. Utilising their range of talents, the Babushka gals will nurse dolls, break dolls and become dolls in their typically surprising arrangements of everything from Regurgitator to Offenbach.

Prepare to be seduced, comforted, tickled and burped through a darkly comedic musical experience drawing from opera, 80's pop, nursery rhymes and rock'n'roll. Take a stroll down the sinister side of memory lane and see the world through your Dolly's eyes: How do we use them to objectify, pacify, falsify and deny?

Babushka beckons you into the Barbie Dreamhouse for a very grown-up play-date...Batteries sold separately.

Please note: Tapas served to the table included in the ticket price; Bar open during Cabaret.
Seating at tables of 8. No special dietary requirements available.

Due to catering requirements, sales cease as at 5pm Thursday 15/09/16. There can be no sales at the door.

O, Beware, My lord, of jealousy; It is the green ey'd monster, which doth mock the meat it feeds on, Act3, Scene 3 

A violent exploration of the thin line that separates love and jealousy, Othello is a relentless journey of vicious passion.

A warrior on the fields of war, felled by the sharpness of whispered words, Othello is a man swept up in desire, quickly turned to murderous rage when he is betrayed by his military brother-in-arms, the cynically destructive lago.
