Spyski! (Or The Importance of Being Honest) archiveLegal theatrical disclaimer: Peepolykus - pronounced "people like us" - absolutely deny all allegations that they might be about to unleash a completely fictitious, untrue, comedy about the poisoning of a Russian dissident in London. In fact they're doing Oscar Wilde. Contrary to state speculation, Spyski! is therefore not a fast-paced comic thriller of international espionage and global politics, which contains shocking revelations about the world we live in. Peepolykus have been acclaimed from the West End to Iran for their hilarious collision of verbal surprises and visual ingenuity. But this time they are merely turning their hand to Oscar Wilde. Or are they?
