THE BITCHES BALL

Penny Dreadful

This is a true tale inspired by the life of the multi-talented Mary Robinson, high flying courtesan and acclaimed poet. An 18th century celebrity of her time. Bold, disgraceful, beautiful, extraordinary, she was shunned by respectable society. Coleridge called her a 'genius' for her tormented gothic verse, much of it written under the influence of opium.

It's League of Gentlemen does Les Liaisons Dangereuses - ripped corsets, stained teeth, white face paint and big frocks. Live music on cello and accordion, fast chaotic action, saucy song and dance numbers and surreal gothic characters.

Penny Dreadful brings innovative physical comedy to new audiences, based on forgotten true histories. Fast-moving, imaginative and extremely funny The Bitches Ball is their newest story.
