Kyle / Bissett Productions

A dazzling, unique horror-comedy from Alan Bissett, the Fringe First-winning creator of The Moira Monologues.

Here he plays five characters – three male, two female, none of them human – locked up together in a mysterious research facility. A shape-shifting, virtuoso performance that confronts humankind’s greatest fears and will make you tremble… with laughter.

‘Hilarious’ ***** (Skinny).

‘Whip-smart… Bissett’s a joy to watch’ ***** (Edinburgh Festivals Magazine).

‘Holds you in its web’ ***** (BroadwayBaby.com).

‘Sophisticated, captivating theatre’ ***** (ThreeWeeks).

‘A real Fringe gem’ **** (Independent).

Written and performed by Alan Bissett. Directed by Sacha Kyle.
