The masters of laughter, Mischief Theatre are back at it again with a gut wrenchingly funny touring version of Peter Pan Goes Wrong, which takes everything theatrical and jumbles it into a mess of impassioned, choreographed mayhem.
Peter Pan Goes Wrong is a show that will never be the same twice and will leave audiences laughing for days.
Burke & Hare, a story of two men who murder people in order to sell their corpses to doctors in 1820s Edinburgh shouldn’t work as a dark character comedy with music. But largely work it does and this three-hander, though somewhat structurally clumsy, is a good alternative to more typical Christmas theatre.
Down at The Bridge we had Martin McDonagh’s “very very very” dark panto; with fewer pretensions and a lot more laughs, give a hand to Tom Wentworth’s spirited and largely true story of Burk & Hare.
How much do you know about the real Burke and Hare? Tom Wentworth’s new stage comedy about the Edinburgh serial killers, who got their just comeuppance on Christmas Day, gets its London premiere this week at Jermyn Street Theatre. Check out the trailer with review highlights from its dates at the Watermill Theatre and on tour. Time to get booking!
After its current critically acclaimed hit with Proud Haddock’s production of World War One musical two-hander Billy Bishop Goes to War, Jermyn Street concludes this year’s Rebels season with the transfer of murderous black comedy three-hander Burke and Hare. Check out photos from the show’s original run at the Watermill Theatre. Time to get booking!
