Songs your mother never taught you.

Darkly witty with gut-punching lyricism, this show uses music and animation to shed light on the dark heart of growing-up and the dark arts of parenting - where tales of the hapless, feckless and foolish stand as warnings.

Meet Cherry the Amazing YoYo Girl, an obsessive dieter caught between gluttony and vanity; Chanel - The Labelled Girl - whose criminal obsession with designer clothes leads to her grisly demise and Arabella Dair who learns that youth, good looks and cheesecake are soon gone, but cyberspace goes on and on. Be careful what you share folks!

‘Hilaire Belloc does Caitlin Moran’ (The Times)

Post show Q&A with writer and performer Tanya Holt.
