IT’S the final performance of Cinderella in a moth-eaten, regional theatre and backstage tensions threaten to boil over onstage.

Will the egotism, one-upmanship and sexual politics remain confined to the dressing room?

Will the ugly sisters keep the professional professional and the personal personal?

Will we ever find out what happened during Babes In The Wood?

Based on a lifetime of experience onstage and backstage Oh No It Isn’t at York Theatre Royal Studio on April 17 and 18 April is a hilariously funny and beautifully moving new play exploring the highs and lows of life in the theatre. Using real anecdotes and stories it is an impassioned yet tender love letter to the world of performance.

The writer and star is York actor and Great British Pantomime Award nominee Luke Adamson, a familiar face to York Theatre Royal audiences.

He first appeared in pantomime there as a child and returned in 2017-18 alongside Dame Berwick Kaler in Jack and the Beanstalk.

Luke’s other previous work includes Odd Man Out, Found, and One Last Waltz.

Oh No It Isn’t! is at the York Theatre Royal Studio on April 17 and 18 April, 7.45pm This show is not suitable for children
