WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
At number 65, the wine is poured, the nibbles ready, the cushions plumped, Buckaroo and the brace and bit are waiting... the doorbell rings. The new neighbours (the audience) have come to say hello and there seems to be rather a lot of them! "Nice to meet you, do come in..." Richard and Isabelle are your hosts for the evening and, having got to know all about their other neighbours over many years, they will share the innermost secrets of the characters living on their street. Behind the Blinds is a new show weaving together lyrically witty and sophisticated songs that reveal what goes on behind the blinds on this ordinary-looking suburban street. Look closely to see that there is no such thing as ordinary! In the great tradition of comic and tragicomic songs, imagine a combustible mix of Victoria Wood, Tim Minchin, Gilbert and Sullivan and Ian Dury!
