Oh No It Isn’t!
by Luke Adamson
directed by Kate Bannister
presented by The Jack Studio Theatre
‘So let’s build the tension – everybody put your hands on your legs and give us a drum roll please! Stamp your feet! Here we go!’
They’re the best of sisters onstage but the worst of friends off it. It’s the final performance of a Cinderella panto in a moth-eaten, regional theatre and backstage tensions threaten to boil over onstage.
Will the egotism, one-up-manship and sexual politics remain confined to the dressing room? Will the ugly sisters keep the professional professional and the personal personal? Will we ever find out what happened during Babes In The Wood?
Oh No It Isn’t! is a brilliantly observed, raucous yet moving new play, exploring the highs and lows of life in the theatre, written by Great British Pantomime Award nominee Luke Adamson.
Oh No It Isn’t! is presented by the award-winning in-house team behind Kindred Spirits, A Christmas Carol and The Invisible Man. Early booking is advised.
