Tales of woe, tales of science, tales of curses, tales of defiance. Also, some juggling. Reach into Fanny's cabinet for a musical voyage of hilarity. But beware! Somebody's out to sink her ship.
This riotous musical comedy invites audiences to meet the eccentric 18th century explorer, Madame Fanny, and to take their pick from her cabinet of curiosities. For whichever curio they choose, Fanny and her servants perform the elaborate tale behind it, taking the audience on a voyage of hilarity. From battling with pirates to partying with Marie Antoinette, Fanny's allegedly done it all. But while she revels in telling her outrageously outlandish stories, somebody far more serious is on the way to bring her down to earth.
Riddlestick Theatre are dedicated to tickling fancies with weird and wonderful stories and enchanting live music. Roll up your sleeves and choose the tales we tell in this riotous celebration of curiosity and imagination.
