A drag act, a Swedish crime comedy thriller and a play about the inventor of the toilet all feature in the latest raft of shows announced for Doncaster’s new Cast theatre.

A puppet theatre, a “sinister and sensuous” cabaret version of Cinderella and a performance artist from Middlesbrough have also been added to the bill for the £22 million venue which opens on September 6.
