Presented by Haz & 5aside theatre in collaboration with Layer by Layer music

The Lion’s Den is New York’s most elite burlesque club, a place full of wonder and enchantment, showcasing only the best dancers in the business. Competition runs high in this cutthroat environment; its every dancer for themselves. That is, until… 

A shocking discovery, made on the most important night of the year, forces the dancers to drop their catty acts, withdraw their claws and band together to reclaim their power. 

Written by Harriet Chomley, directed by Hannah Beach and assisted by Benjaminn McCann, The Lion’s Den combines farcical satire with the seductive dance of burlesque, against the backdrop of live music from the multitalented band Layer by Layer. The play charms whilst also challenging the inherent entitlement of voyeurism that is seen too often in art forms revolving around the naked body.


This performance contains partial nudity and mentions of drug use.


This performance contains strobe lighting.
