'Playtime' - Monday / Wednesday / Friday / Sunday

It’s ‘Playtime’ and the two twisted 10-year-olds are determined to put on a cabaret show in their naughtiest performance yet. The Twins relive their most notorious kills, play games with audience members and sing demonic ditties. A high-energy, fast-paced 60 minutes of dark comedy intertwined with vaudevillian theatrics, ghoulish music and just a touch of gore.

Playtime was shortlisted for Best Show at this year’s Fragility Takeover Festival.

★★★★ ‘They make you laugh even when your skin crawls.’ –The List







'Crime Doesn’t Play'  - Tuesday / Thursday / Saturday

‘Crime Doesn’t Play’, is a brand new horror-crime-thriller-comedy. In the quiet town of Shadyoaks, the bodies of well-loved residents have been found in horrifying circumstances. City bigshot D.I. McKeith has been called in to assist local bumpkin Sergeant Jones. The pair have Maurice and Ivy, two strange and ghoulish siblings, in custody. Through the investigation, the detectives uncover the truth, which turns out to be more spine-tingling than they could ever have imagined. Delve into the darkest depths of the psychopathic condition and dare to laugh at what you find!

Crime Doesn’t Play premiered at the London Horror Festival in October 2016:
