Literary Cabarets

Roll up roll up for cabaret celebrations of your favourite authors, their life and their times! Brought to you by Scary Little Girls, who’ve enjoyed sell out successes in Edinburgh, London, Brighton and across the South West, these affectionate tribute are performative romps conducted with tongues firmly in cheeks!

Join us as we homage the literary greats through story telling, music,audience games and sketches. Choose from our menu of cabarets about Oscar Wilde, The Brontes, Daphne du Maurier and Charles Dickens. These irreverent and fun filled evenings will delight literature aficionados and theatre fans alike – and you’ll never read the classics in the same way again!

“Scary Little Girls are minxes–every single one! They’re as smart as they are comedic and their dark wit gives the whole thing a grown-up gloss. A literary cabaret like no other!”
Damien Barr, Programmer,
Brighton Fringe


“Scary Little Girls are guaranteed crowd pleasers. Each year they have found brilliant and innovative new ways to delight capacity crowds. Best of all they are a delight to work with”
Jonathan Aberdeen, Programmer,
du Maurier Festival
