Victorian Freakshow comes to Spread Eagle in Croydon
After the success of their debut production, Tea at Five, The Spread Eagle Theatre will next month play host to a Victorian Freakshow.
Critically acclaimed Tin Shed Theatre Company present Mary Shelley’s Classic Horror, Frankenstein like never before, immersed in the twisted and debauched world of a Victorian Travelling Freak Show.
Through the depraved and twisted eyes of one cynical raconteur and his faithful gaggle of gormless goons, Shelley’s story is retold by The Ring Leader and his Freaks, the Bearded Lady, Half Lobster-Half Man, an Amazonian Ape Lady and Dr Frankenstein’s Creature himself.
Using a mix of puppetry, projections and physical theatre, Dr Frankenstein’s Travelling Freakshow treads the thin line between hilarity and morality in Tin Shed’s darkly comic and sickly twisted production.
This is the second production at The Spread Eagle Theatre, a new pub theatre in the centre of Croydon specialising in critically-acclaimed new writing.
It is the second theatre in Fuller’s Brewery’s new stable of professional pub theatres, after The Old Joint Stock Theatre in Birmingham.
Dr Frankenstein's Travelling Freakshow, The Spread Eagle Theatre, 39-41 Katharine Street, Croydon, November 5 to 8, 7.30pm, tickets £10, 020 8781 1134, www.spreadeaglecroydon.co.uk/theatre
