SoHo Cinders | Theater Review*

Following the run-away success of last year’s sell out production of The Baker’s Wife, Hessle Theatre Company make their return to Hull Truck with the local premiere of Soho Cinders, a hilarious and heartwarming twist on the Cinderella Tale.

Last night I was lucky enough to be invited to the Hull Truck theatre to see the performance of Soho Cinders. As soon as I saw the poster for this show I was intrigued and thought it would be something I would enjoy so when the opportunity arise for the #HeyBloggers to get involved I jumped at the chance.

Soho Cinders is edgy, fun and deliciously naughty set in London’s most colourful district. Director Richard Foot had this to say about the production: “This reworking of Cinderella mixes plenty of comedy with a few darker elements that will resonate with a modern audience”.

Not knowing what to expect, I was rather excited to see a fabulous drag queen upon walking in to the theatre who came and jumped in to our selfie straight away - from that moment on I knew it would be hilarious! Firstly, the set looked great, not that I know much about the back ground and the production however it painted a picture from the start. The cast of course brought the show to life! 

The songs, the music the lighting was of course all brought together wonderfully to tell the story of a young boy named Robbie who had fallen in Love! Your typical Cinderella story with a twist complete with Ugly step sisters of course which for me where the highlight as they where incredibly hilarious! So many catchy tunes that had us dancing in our seats - especially 'You shall go to the ball Cinderella' - Loved it!

I do not want to give too much of the story line away as the characters will grip you and take on your own journey but I would fully recommend for you to book your seat and do not miss out on a fabulous night of laugh out loud entertainment!

Soho Cinders is on at Hull Truck Theatre from 4 - 8 September 2018. Book tickets via the Hull Truck Box Office, call 01482 323 638 or visit:
