Beauty and the Beast
What do you get when a born freak, a former beauty queen & an award-winning maverick Director tell the true story of Beauty and the Beast?
Mat Fraser, British disabled actor and writer, Julie Atlas Muz, American art star and a Miss Exotic World/Miss Coney Island, and Phelim McDermott, Artistic Director of Improbable, with puppeteers Jess Mabel Jones and Jonny Dixon conspire to make an adult fairytale like no other.
Warning: this show contains both beautiful and beastly nudity, and scenes of an explicit sexual nature.

'What a privilege to be a part of this theatrical sorcery [...] It's a leap that feels a lot like falling in love.'
'It's the kind of show that ends with spontaneous hugging in the audience.'
Time Out New York
'Moving, thought-provoking and completely charming.’
‘A show that takes disability out of the theatrical ghetto and presents it full frontal.’
‘Dangerous, playful, eliciting screams of scandalised laughter.'
‘A gorgeous play that leaves one feeling happy that true love still exists in our fast modern world.’
‘A joyously explicit adaptation’
“Who would have thought a real husband and wife could have an audience whooping when they first lock lips - or crying at their goodbye PDAs? But these two really got us good.”
‘Cannot be missed’
