Joseph Morpurgo: Hammerhead

30 May 18–2 Jun 18

Main House: Seated

Joseph Morpurgo presents his masterpiece: a boundary-smashing, 9-hour adaption of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Or is it?

Outlandishly funny multimedia comedy and new voodoo from the distinguished mind of the 2015 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, three-time 2016 Chortle Award winner and BBC Radio Four star Joseph Morpurgo, featuring surreal set-pieces, vivid comic writing, subliminal pulse signals – and monsters. Following sell-out runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and Soho Theatre, Hammerhead now embarks on a nationwide tour.

‘Uproariously funny – you could watch it twice and not stop laughing.’ ★★★★ Guardian

‘A monster hit – it crackles with energy.’ ★★★★ Telegraph

‘Monstrously funny meta-comedy.’ ★★★★ Evening Standard

‘Dazzling in its scope and creativity – inventively deranged and hugely enjoyable.’ ★★★★ Scotsman
