Look Behind You – Theatre At The Tabard

17 January - 3 February 2024

Five-star favourites Strut & Fret return to the Tabard with a sparkling new revival of their sell-out hit Look Behind You. Welcome to the cross-dressing, thigh-slapping, wise-cracking world of pantomime, where monkeys talk, dreams come true and people are hit but never hurt.

Now look behind the scenes… at the bad-mouthing, two-timing, pill-popping pressure cooker that is backstage reality. The perfect bitter-sweet antidote to the seasonal slush!

Christmas. New Year. A time for peace, goodwill and happy-ever-after? Oh, no, it isn’t! Not for the mixed bag of mixed-up has-beens, wannabes and never-will-bes trapped in the last-chance theatre of a godforsaken seaside town, performing Dick Whittington, somewhere far, far away from the paved gold of old London Town…

Strut & Fret’s original production at the Tabard attracted rave reviews:

‘a hugely entertaining spectacle”

‘one of the few shows which deserves 10/10”

‘don’t bother with mainstream panto. See this show!”

Now it’s back, in a freshly minted new production of Daniel Wain’s ‘beautifully original”, ‘cracking”, ‘razor-sharp” script.

So seize the dame! Sneak under the curtain and steam open this poisoned love letter to the theatre: the bitchiest, barmiest, bravest business of them all.

Strut & Fret’s first show (Noises Off) garnered a five-star review from The Scotsman and their most recent (Larkin With Women, at London’s Old Red Lion in 2022) proved just as popular with audiences and critics alike:

‘Sublime and very funny… A very strong production… Highly recommended… 5-stars” (Mark Aspen Reviews)

‘An absolutely splendid show… Award-worthy form… A fine example of what fringe theatre can deliver… 5-stars” (Broadway World)

Cast includes writer Daniel Wain and Cait Hart Dyke (from the original production), joined by both Annabel Miller and Mia Skytte (from Strut & Fret’s recent 5-star production of Larkin With Women), and Anna Piggott (Lizzy Bennet in last year’s Pride and Prejudice, York House Gardens). Further casting to be announced…

Directed by Barney Hart Dyke & designed by Richard Evans
