Following its hugely acclaimed premiere at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2015, Cautionary Tales for Daughters brings its lyricism to Holt Festival. Musical tales of the hapless, feckless and foolish stand as stark warnings! Composer and performer, Tanya Holt, takes the audience on a foray through comedy, song and animation, to the dark heart of growing-up and the dark arts of parenting.
Real-life stories submitted by the public cast a playful, sometimes painfully honest, light on the challenges, travails and triumphs of parenthood
Running Time - 1 hour 45 minutes
