The Bear is getting married. Again. And all of his previous wives have a habit of dying mysteriously... This is the centuries old folk tale Bluebeard re-wired for 2016. It's about control, power and female transgression. With jokes. And beautiful original music in a mix of genres, alongside unique arrangements of songs by Nick Cave, Amy Winehouse and Rage Against the Machine, all sung in close part harmony. Four women are here to tell you a disturbingly familiar story. Are you sitting comfortably?


The Brides Of Bluebeard is written by critically acclaimed cabaret ensemble The Ruby Dolls, with original music and arrangements composed by the company. This production is funded by Arts Council England.

The Ruby Dolls are: Jessica Sedler, Susanna Fiore, Rebecca Shanks and Tara Siddall.

Directed by Iain Johnstone (Told By An Idiot, National Theatre of Scotland) and Musical Direction by Benjamin Cox (Heritage Opera, Sweeney Todd: West End & Broadway.)

"A clever show...crafted tenderly enough to make me want to bawl." The Observer

“Highly unorthodox, highly imaginative… boisterous, sharp, witty and inventive.” The Scotsman

“It’s so rare I want to shout about anything from the rooftops but I do want to shout from the rooftops about The Ruby Dolls. The Spectator.
