Tidy Carnage presents REaD
As cabaret within a play REaD features song, dance, cutting edge performance poetry alongside frank anecdotes and defiant battle cries.
In a world where Reds are strictly segregated and under curfew, red artists have been forced underground. Forming highly secret Red cabaret clubs they use their skills to survive. REaD focuses on one such club: The Scarlet Church where the performers' illicit existence necessitates keeping of Red secrets...
A show that’s part catwalk, part political rally, part support group for underdogs everywhere, REaD is a celebration of individuality, resilience – and the sheer joy of having red hair.
