The Theatre Brothel
THE THEATRE BROTHEL
in association with Northern Stage, Hull Truck and Almeida
So, you put on your coat, gathered your significant other, fed the Cat/Dog/Children, left the house and came to the theatre. And now? Now what? Well…What do you want?
Do you want us to make you laugh? cry?
Or are you into the more complex stuff? Beauty? Catharsis? Maybe even a little transubstantiation?
Or do you just like to sit in the dark and watch?
Its all good, don’t worry, no one will judge you here. We are here to help, to try and satisfy your various appetites, all you have to do is tell us…what do you really want?
The Theatre Brothel is a brand new theatre experience featuring an exciting array of new and established talent.
During the evening you will choose which of the many performances on offer you see, you’ll explore hidden corners of theatre buildings and hidden corners of yourself, you might try something completely different, you might even get a taste for it.
The Theatre Brothel is a major new project for Greyscale, created in partnership with Northern Stage, Hull Truck and the Almeida we are pushing our boundaries, inviting our audiences to come a little closer and hoping for a happy ending.
The Theatre Brothel is produced by The Empty Space.
“The evening unfolded in a series of engaging, funny and thought-provoking surprises.”
Jonathan Brown, The Independent.
“Greyscale’s touring show The Theatre Brothel, which takes place in unexpected backstage spaces, is packaged with the whiff of the illicit… A Prayer, told with charm by Scott Turnbull, touchingly puts its faith in the audience to set aside reason and just believe”.
Lyn Gardner, The Guardian.
“A wonderful piece that works because of the honesty of the performance, heart-breaking at times but also very funny for all the wrong reasons…I urge you to take a gamble yourself and see The Theatre Brothel.”
Damian Robson, Whatsonstage.com.
“It’s definitely worth taking the risk, even though you haven’t the faintest idea what you’re going to see. In lesser hands, this could have been a disaster but the buzz in the interval and after the show from audience members and visiting industry professionals alike conveyed the message loud and clear: give it a try; take the risk.”
Peter Lathan, The British Theatre Guide
