Twisted Retro – Walk The Plank

Some news from Walk The Plank…

The seed has been planted, watered and carefully nurtured and now the cabaret is beginning to grow!

Twisted Retro …where Casablanca meets David Lynch
On Friday 17th February
on board Walk the Plank’s theatre ship

Climb aboard from 9.30pm, showtime begins 10pm prompt
…with dancing later till 2am

Twisted Retro is second in a series of cabaret evenings that present scratch performance and music from emerging and experienced artists…an exciting mix of the best of Liverpool’s home grown talent, bringing together some of the city’s most creative people to plant the seeds of ideas.

The ‘Twisted Retro’ cabaret will feature music, performance, comedy, film & projections, unusual theatre and much much more! Enter the world of Twisted Retro, it’s simply fabulous darling!

The Guest Head Gardener is Patrick Dineen, film maker, director & writer who has been invited to programme and curate the evening, and you can expect the best in organic ideas and a pest-free environment. We, in turn, expect you to dress up, turn up, and be up for something a bit different.

Dress code – Absolutely no trainers, jeans or T-shirts…dress code is thirties & forties! Very glamorous, dresses, tuxes and zoot suits. It’s a chance to dress up. Explore your own fantasies.

We expect to encourage critical debate and constructive feedback as part of the process, and The Potting Shed will be run on the basis that there are no spectators … everyone’s a participant in the experience (although that doesn’t mean you have to get up on stage).

Introductory ticket price is £5 paid on the night.

Walk the Plank’s theatre ship is moored in Canning Dock, opposite Coopers Pub on the Dock Road and the Pumphouse Inn in the Albert Dock complex. The ship is a challenging environment for people with limited mobility – please get in touch in advance of your visit.

More dates for your diary – Friday 3 and Friday 17 March. Information to follow soon!
