7 Deadly SIns. London Run Information

Information on the new show 7 Deadly Sins

Soho Theatre by arrangement with Tim Whitehead presents
The Tiger Lillies
7 Deadly Sins
also featuring Nathan Evans and Ophelia Bitz
at the New Players Theatre from 7?-26 April

Punk cabaret favourites The Tiger Lillies present a brand new theatre cabaret charting man?s fall from paradise to hell, to be premiered at the atmospheric New Players Theatre. With Punch and Judy puppetry, the show puts a post-modern twist on the tale of Adam and Eve, as same-sex couple Punch and Jude represent the original sinners in the age of civil partnership. With an original new song for each deadly sin, the show bursts with The Tiger Lillies? dark and deviant style. The three-piece band is joined by burlesque performer Ophelia Bitz and puppetry from performer Nathan Evans.

Nathan Evans was involved in the Olivier Award-winning C?est Barbican. His theatre credits also include Puppetry of the Pops (tributes to Morrisey, Bowie and Bush), Atomic (a Blondie-inspired lipsynch spectacular) and Rather Be Dead than Gay. He hosts Vauxhallville at the Vauxhall Tavern, Cabaret Carousel at Madame JoJos and Puppet Grinder cabaret at The Little Angel Theatre.

Ophelia Bitz is a comic burlesque performer, actor, singer, dancer, compere, comedian, radio performer, installation artist and hands-free cocktail shaker. Recent gigs include UK tours with Mika and The Dresden Dolls, Tim Burton and Helena Bonham-Carter?s Halloween party, appearances on Derren Brown's C4 series, and a film collaboration with Peter Suschitzky.

Acclaimed Austrian artist Lukas Maximilian Huller has provided stunning scenic art based on Hieronymus Bosch?s triptych The Last Judgement. The Seven Deadly Sins, his own exhibition of photography and installation, takes place at the Galerie Caprice Horn in Berlin. The exhibition features The Tiger Lillies representing the sin of Wrath.    

The Tiger Lillies 7 Deadly Sins runs at the recently refurbished New Players Theatre. The theatre has a long history as a music hall and playhouse in its home under the arches at Charing Cross. Steeped in history and with speculated gruesome connections to Jack the Ripper, this is the perfect home for a new show from The Tiger Lillies.
