Send for Mr Plim

Send for Mr PlimT01190842872
The Berlin cabaret scene of the 20s and 30s - sexy, iconoclastic, politically charged and dangerous - has exerted an enduring fascination throughout the 20th century. To celebrate the centenary of one of the era's most gifted, inventive and witty composers - Mischa Spoliansky - the aware-winning Greenwich Studio Theatre and the internationally acclaimed vocal ensemble Cantabile present Send For Mr Plim. A bewitching blend of jazz improvisation and operatic pastiche composed under the looming threat of Nazism and set in a beleaguered Berlin department store. With the economy crumbling and privileged few indulging in rampant shopping sprees, the store's management (played by Cantabile) devise a novel and outlandish scheme for dealing with customer complaints, with wholly unexpected and hilarious consequences.
