Vinegar Tom

By Carly Churchill

2nd-26th July 2008

Joint Artistic Director, Gilt & Grime

"Evil women

Is that what you want?

Is that what you want to see?"

In a small village in the seventeenth century, one young woman's sexual rebellion sparks the scapegoating of the entire sex. Questioning, progressive, hysterical or ageing, every woman fears for her life in the fierce witch-hunt which ensues.

Tonight, your cabaret hosts invite you to discover an equally dark but altogether different world. Join them at the exclusive Cobden Club for an evening of outrageous comedy, irreverent songs and sobering drama on the Victorian music hall stage of the Cobden Club's Grand Hall.

Gilt & Grime is delighted to revive this provocative play by one of Britain's best-loved playwrights with a brand new musical score.
