Mustard Doesn’t Go With Girls is an inclusive feminist musical for the modern
child. Join us in the surreal town of Bow-on-Tie, a town deeply rooted in
tradition and run by the dubious mayor Croque Madame (or is it Croc?!). When
the children start mysteriously disappearing, eight-year-old Abigail decides to
investigate further, embarking on an adventure where social norms are
questioned and the town’s secrets are uncovered. Will Abigail and the rebel
children be able to prevent their horrific fate, and by doing so change the town’s
divide of boys and girls?
Using an original score, slick movement and strong characters this production
seeks to poke fun at fairytales from the past whilst creating new storylines for
the young generation of today. Join Abigail on her journey towards being heard
in a society that is stuck in the past. The show is empowering for both children
and grown-ups, of whatever gender, showing that you can be anyone and
anything you want to be.
Bric à Brac is an international ensemble who tell stories in
unexpected ways. We work collaboratively to create original
devised performances. Made up of theatre-makers from
across the UK, America, and Norway, we graduated
from the École Internationale de Théâtre Jacques Lecoq in
2015. The company has a core ensemble of actors, directors,
writers and musicians who have received acclaim for their
debut show, Ash, at the Southwark Playhouse, The Vaults
Festival, the Space UK, and at the Paris and Edinburgh Fringes
2016. Our work has been supported by Arts Council England,
The Space, ArtHouse Jersey, The Pleasance, and St. Margaret's
House. We were also selected as one of the New Diorama's
Emerging Graduate companies in 2018/19.
