CORONAVIRUS: currently, all theatres and related venues are closed. Shows are either being cancelled, postponed or rescheduled and we are trying to keep up with all the changes. There are currently few changes after May 2020 and many shows that were due for April have been pushed back towards the end of Autumn. Pantomimes are looking like a safe bet at the moment ;-)
Inspired by the Book by Edward Gorey. It came seventeen years ago - and to this day, it has shown no intention of going away... When an uninvited and strangely fantastical creature finds its way into a very normal household, its pure existence wreaks havoc. As it challenges their strict routines and descends the family into chaos, they search desperately for ways of dealing with the peculiar behaviour of their doubtful guest. Edward Goreyâs humorous and sinister tale of adolescence and mayhem is now brought to life by award-winning theatre company Hoipolloi, best known at the New Wolsey for their work with Hugh Hughes. Beautifully comic, delightfully dark and full of theatrical invention, this show will appeal to adults, children and mischievous misfits of all ages. Performers Cassie Friend, Ben Frimston, Stefanie Muller, Andrew Pembrooke, Trond-Erik Vassdal.
