About this event

A national emergency is declared. Civil liberties are restricted. Theatres and nightclubs -- intellectual, artistic havens - are closing. A chanteuse takes to a smoky stage in musical defiance. A postmodern cabaret for a world on fire, inspired by the Weimar Kabarett tradition.

Designed & Directed by Tom Kitney

Musical Direction by Emma Knights

Voice Over & Translation by Michael Morley

Associate Design by George Cort
