A Gay In A Manger

Thu 12 - Sat 21 Dec 2013 | 12th-14th & 19th-21st Dec | 7.30pm | £8/£6

Everyone’s favourite gender-bending duo Tranny and Roseannah present an alternative festive experience. Come on in, make yourselves comfortable, and enjoy the story of Christmas as you’ve never seen it before…

It’s CHRIIIIIST-MASSSS! That most special time of year, when the decorations go up, the foul-mouthed family comes over, and the booze goes down. Well this time, Tranny and Roseannah have invited you round to theirs for a cosy Christmas night in – only, it might not be quite what you expect. Think John Waters hosting Noel’s House Party and you’re getting close. Think a camp cabaret atmosphere where anything goes and Christmas values get twisted and shaken and you’re even closer.

Featuring Eilidh MacAskill as Grandpa, Laurie Brown as Roseannah and Rosana Cade as Tranny, join us for an evening of special guests, an alternative take on the Christmas nativity, and some good old-fashioned yuletide singalongs. With tits, tinsel, and turkey, baubles, balls, and blood, this is an X-rated Xmas show you won’t soon forget.

Devised by Laurie Brown, Rosana Cade and Arches Artist-in-Residence Adrian Howells.

Performances take place on Thurs 12th, Fri 13th & Sat 14th and Thurs 19th, Fri 20th & Sat 21st December
