A lively theatre show based on the folk tale of Blue Beard, a magician who makes his wives disappear so that he will inherit their wealth. Cards, coins, scarves… and women. Puff! Gone. Without a trace.

However, he meets his match when his newest young bride discovers his dark secret.

A magical, music-filled feminist production recommended for ages 12+.
