The Red Shoes: be careful what you wish for...

A fabulous pair of red shoes –what’s not to love? – bold, beautiful and a bit naughty – our heroine loves her red shoes –they make her dance and the dance is a dance of joy, of power, of release. But there is a problem, and it’s a big problem! She can’t take the shoes off…she can’t stop the dance!

This promises to be a tantalisingly dark cabaret with dance, song, music and joyful ensemble work creating a rich, tasty palette of treats for our audiences to share.

Part of the Barn’s 2018-2019 Season.
