The Arches to Present Adult Christmas Show A GAY IN A MANGER, Begin. 12 Dec
The Arches will present A Gay in a Manger - trashy take on the nativity on 12th-14th & 19th-21st Dec | 7.30pm | £8/£6 | at 253 Argyle Street Glasgow G2 8DL | www.thearches.co.uk | 18+.
It's CHRIIIIIST-MASSSS! It's that most special time of year, when the decorations go up, the booze gets opened, and the foul-mouthed family members come round to visit. Everyone's favourite gender-bending duo Tranny and Roseannah have invited you over to theirs for a cosy Christmas night in. Only their idea of a cosy night in might not be what you expect... Imagine John Waters hosting a festive Noel's House Party and you're getting close. A camp cabaret atmosphere where anything goes and traditional Christmas values get the kind of treatment that'd make your mum blush. Expect special guests, twisted Christmas carols, good old-fashioned yuletide singalongs, and a huge serving of trashy festive spirits.
Devised and performed by Arches regulars Laurie Brown and Rosana Cade, and Arches Artist-in-Residence Adrian Howells, A Gay in a Manger is a truly alternative festive experience. With tits, tinsel, and turkey, baubles, balls, and blood, it's an X-rated Xmas show you won't soon forget. Christmas just got real.
The Arches breaks down traditional notions of what an arts venue should be. One of Europe's leading cultural venues, this buzzing Victorian space promotes some of the UK's biggest club nights, an eclectic range of gigs, innovative theatre, visual art exhibitions and imaginative corporate events.
