A new idea, the SpeakEasy Cabaret is a mix of spoken word event and brilliant, best of the Edinburgh Festival, acts.  It happens on the first Saturday of the month at The Wheatsheaf in Rathbone Place in Central London.

First Half - storytelling by anyone who wants to tell a story. Or sing a song.  Or read a poem. Only two rules. The story must be true (and yours!) and no more than 10 minutes long.  Contact us if you'd like to book a slot.  

Second Half - top acts direct from the Edinburgh Festival Fringe, or works in progress.  All for a tenner! (£15 on the door)  If you'd like to know more, please email speakeasy @ mavericktheatre.co.uk 

And after a trial of three months, we decided the event was so warm, supportive, creative and funny, we're going to extend it into 2019.  And we have a remarkable line-up of established acts... along with our first-timers... and hopefully YOU!

Next event - Saturday 6 April...


GODDESS is a comedy storytelling show, based on Jacqueline Haigh's true experiences of working as a receptionist in a Tantric Massage parlour. Directed by the award-winning Alan Short (ex-Aardman, Sony). Goddess appeared at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2018 and was popular with audiences and critics alike. 

"**** (four stars)...well written and conveyed...great characters...Haigh brings colour and vitality...heartwarming"   The Wee Review
