One of our favourite Cardiff cabaret groups, Mary Bijou Cabaret are on tour, and you can catch them THIS THURSDAY, 12 March at the Royal Welsh College of Music and Drama!
“No one is innocent!” snarls the compere. At a cabaret based on the work of Alfred Hitchcock, these are the only words we can trust. Mary Bijou Cabaret and Social Club presents HITCH. Walking the line between hilarity and horror, the cabaret includes a singing Mrs. Danvers, extolling her beloved Rebecca; a Vertigo victim walking a wire in high heels; Tippi Hedren on a Chinese pole, beset by Birds; Marlene Dietrich, prowling the theatre, looking for an accomplice or victim – she’s not picky.
With music by Tom Elstob (The Idol Rich), Bethan Cecil, and Branwen Munn, the cast sing for their lives. Someone will lose their life tonight…perhaps more than one.
Mary Bijou Cabaret and Social Club pushes cabaret to new frontiers. Created by a troupe of international circus and cabaret artists, veterans of NoFit State Circus and the underground live art scene of London, HITCH was originally commissioned for the Wales Millennium Centre and Blysh Festival. HITCH is also funded by the Arts Council Wales.
Fancy dress is optional but highly recommended. Come as your favourite Hitchcock character … victim, villain or hapless innocent. Or maybe you fancy yourself as the ‘master of suspense’ himself.
“This is beyond cabaret and into the realm of high dramatic art. If I could give it six stars, I would. A triumph” – John Christopher Wood
