Created and directed by Debbie McMahon
The Cabinet of Hands by Chris Bell
Don your best cocktail and/or vintage attire and join the Grand Guignolers on a 1920s luxury cruise to Shanghai. Come early for on-board entertainment at 8pm: period photos, Charleston, Flashlight Follies, tango, absinthe & tea tastings, songs, and a live travelogue. Set sail at 8:30 (showtime) to Shanghai, the most decadent city of the 1920s.
After docking, meet Sing Song girls (Chinese geishas) and The Green Gang in Sing Song Girl Sing Last Song, a dancing/brawling movement based melodrama. Witness spectacle and magic in the absinthe fueled hallucinations of The Sorcerer’s Apprentice. Visit a sinister opium den in The Cabinet of Hands by Chris Bell, a Grand Guignol play about a Madame with a penchant for collecting hands. And see hypnosis and ventriloquism turn deadly performed by the ever popular, Petits Guignolers, a French finger puppet troupe.
