  • BASH STREET

Bellevue Hotel-a brand-new, outdoor, family show from Bash Street Theatre-is set around a dilapidated, theatrical boarding house in a seaside town in the 1950s. It tells the story of a landlady, Elsie Lovejoy and her battle with the gangster boss of the neighbouring sweet factory who is determined to buy her out. But ex-showgirl, Elsie is no stranger to adversity, and when she realises her theatrical guests have some useful talents to deploy, they rally round to save her establishment, and together they do battle with her nasty neighbour and his Demolition Men! With live piano music, silent comedy, a touch of magic and some hair-raising action, Bellevue Hotel is performed in the inimitable, non-verbal, comic style for which Bash Street Theatre has become renowned.
