The Wild Party - 2017 - West End

£10 - 65

Starring Tony Award winning Frances Ruffelle, the production will open The Other Palace Theatre’s first season, when it reopens in February 2017 as the newest addition to The Really Useful Theatres Group and a home for new musical theatre.

The Wild Party tells the story of Queenie and Burrs, a Vaudeville showgirl and a Vaudeville clown, whose relationship is filled with vicious behaviour and recklessness. In an attempt to save their toxic relationship, the pair decide to throw the best party they can. But as the party reaches its climax, the illusion is stripped away and tragedy occurs, forcing the revellers to face up to reality.
