Venue: Downstairs

"That detective's come to town... this is going to change everything."

"Typical, and it's only Tuesday."

A bad man is murdered in a niceish hotel, an arts administrator hides a terrible Mafia-based secret (she was in the Mafia), an evil councillor makes a land grab, and - at the centre of it all - a ropey drag queen fights for survival in a changing world. Totally normal town. Total powder keg.

Under Milk Wood meets Twin Peaks in a glossy, synthy, gorgeous musical about community: what we'll do to ourselves to create it, and what we'll do to someone else to protect it.


Seiriol Davies' previous show How to Win Against History, developed with support from Ovalhouse, was winner of The Stage Edinburgh Award 2016 and the Broadway Baby Bobby Award 2016 and a total sell-out show at Edinburgh Fringe 2016

and received wide-spread critical acclaim:

★★★★★ "A work of genius" The Telegraph - Dominic Cavendish

★★★★ “It’s the sort of show that makes the world better by sheer dint of how fun it is.” TIME OUT - Andrzej Lukowski 


  • Thu 9 Mar, 7:30pm
