Salon du Chocolat
Allow the Salon du Chocolat to stimulate your senses!
When chocolate was first introduced in England in the 1600s, it was considered a taboo substance, enjoyed only by the risqué and elite in private salons. Some of our finest literature was also once considered too provocative for public consumption and was heard in similar salon environments by only the boldest of ears. Scary Little Girls recreate these intimate environs, combining mouth-watering chocolate treats with tales of the secret, banned and scandalous from authors such as Lord Byron, John Donne, Angela Carter and Joanne Harris.
90 minutes performance time, including interval. Age guidance 14+
