From the makers of Frank's Closet comes a new musical set in London's Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens. Pop-up performances through the summer of 2012, including The London Pleasure Gardens.
The Mask of Joy is a musical adaptation of Max Beerbohm's The Happy Hypocrite, the story of a man who dons a mask for love – and by using a disguise, reveals his true self.
Set in the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens on a single night, The Mask of Joy throws light on a period when London attracted the attention of the world, in a place that was a synonym for groundbreaking and extravagant public entertainment.

Five songs will be performed in original 18th Century costumes around a ‘rococo beatbox’ - mixing original songs from the show with some pimped-up pop classics such as Katy Perry’s Fireworks mixed with Handel’s Fireworks music. You will be required to sing on the recordings which will be used as playback.
We will have our own ‘side show’ decorated with a large ‘Photo Floral Frame’ for punters to have their picture taken with you.
