The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps£3 - £5 Tickets
Part of the Big Imaginations Festival
Matthew Linley Creative Projects
In association with Action Transport Theatre and Eastern Angles presents
Murray Lachlan Young’s
A ‘theatrical treat’ that’s perfect for lovers of Harry Potter, Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and The Brothers Grimm!
Celebrated poet and broadcaster Murray Lachlan Young (Radio 4, Radio 2 and BBC 6 Music poet in residence,) stars in this thrilling new family performance perfect for audiences young and old!
After the windswept double funeral of his parents, 7-year-old Crispin (or Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps to give him his full name) inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps. He finds himself in a huge empty house with only an ancient butler for company. And when that butler, Kenilworth, begins to tell him about the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his deeply eccentric ancestors the story takes flight on darkly comic wings.
The acclaimed Raddlesham Mumps mixes compelling story telling with a brilliant musical score (by Arun Ghosh), oodles of theatricality and a touch of exquisite silliness.
