MOTHER MUST DIE?
Pleasance Theatre October 2019
Old Red Lion Theatre February 2020
It’s Halloween, and mother’s birthday, and sisters Jocasta and Jupiter are making their annual visit. The soufflé is on the rise, the rosé is on ice, and they have murder on their minds. But will the sisters get to give their darling mother the ultimate present, or does she have other plans...?
What secrets lurk behind those doors? What isn’t Mother telling her darling daughters? And will this evening be the night that all is revealed...?
'Mother must die?!' was devised by Fantastic Garlands for the London Horror Festival in 2019 and is darkly comic tale of secrets, lies and family ties, described as 'a fast-moving and pleasantly grotesque way to spend the best part of an hour' which 'gets in, achieves its goal and
gets out while the audience is still laughing’ by London City Nights.
UP THE BUNTY
The Lion & Unicorn Theatre August and December 2019
In their heyday The Soparettas – a weekly musical soap opera- were a much-loved British institution with their saucy jokes and catchy songs, however ten years later their style and stars are no longer in demand.
But when an anonymous investor offers tyrannical producer Harry Hepworth financial backing for a reunion theatre production, he quickly assembles a hapless cast and brings back the much-loved star of the first season – Bunty the Beaver. But with a dwindling budget, bickering cast, and a psychopath stalking the production, will the show ever go on?!
