The Turbine Theatre announces new adult pantomime The Nutcracker

The Turbine Theatre is to present new adult pantomime The Nuctcracker this festive season.

For a limited time this Christmas, audiences will get to enjoy the very adult twist on the classic, running at the London venue from 30 November – 23 December 2023.

Written by Joshua Coley (Elf The Musical, The Wind In The Willows), this new pantomime is, for audiences 18+, the perfect Christmas tale about learning to love after heartbreak …and seeking revenge.

Those on the cast are Amy Anzel, Holly Ashman, Theo Walker and Grace Whyte.

Carlie’s had a terrible year: her love rat ex has ghosted her, her father died in a collision with a Just Stop Oil protest and now her Mum is insistent on still throwing their annual festive party.

A typical year in the 2020’s some may say, but thanks to a prezzie from her inappropriate, local drunk uncle – this Christmas will be anything but typical!

The Nutcracker is written by Joshua Coley, with direction by Luke Byrne, design by Andy Robinson, musical direction by Ben Tomalin, lighting design by Oliver McNally, sound design by Richard Carter and costumes by Janet Huckle.
