The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps
22 May - 23 May 2020
‘Fearsome and Funny’ Michael Rosen
‘Side-splittingly hilarious’ Howard Blake (The Snowman)
‘Murray Lachlan Young’s latest masterpiece’ Matt Everitt
A gothic tale to make you shudder and laugh out loud!
Celebrated poet & 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!
When 7-year-old Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps, he finds himself with only an ancient butler for company. As Kenilworth begins to tell him about the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his eccentric ancestors, the story takes flight on darkly comic wings.
Mixing storytelling with a brilliant musical score (by Arun Ghosh), oodles of theatricality and a touch of exquisite silliness, this ‘theatrical treat’ is perfect for lovers of Harry Potter, Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and The Brothers Grimm!
