La Mama presents

BIJOU - A CABARET OF SECRETS AND SEDUCTION


a SmallShows production
Written and performed by Chrissie Shaw with pianist Alan Hicks
15 to 19 June

You’re transported to a café-bar in Paris 1933. A wine, a chat; the music plays… there’s a new face in the crowd. A ravaged figure in faded finery and fake pearls enters and the evening takes an unexpected turn. ‘Bijou’, former Queen of the Demi-Monde, unleashes an eruption of intimate, colorful memories, taking us backwards in time to the shadows of her youth. Bijou survives a hard world by constantly reinventing herself.

This sumptuous, poignant cabaret peeps into the private, sensual world of a riveting Parisienne d’un certain age. Music of Satie, Weill, Hollander, Bruant and others, accompanies her stories and songs. Chrissie Shaw, award-winning theatre veteran, is joined by leading accompanist Alan Hicks as the long-suffering bar pianist.
