£15.00 - £16.50

Join us at Soho's Union Club for a very special one off performance of Murray Lachlan Young's THE MYSTERY OF THE RADDLESHAM MUMPS.

Murray's acclaimed show tells the story of 7-year-old orphan Crispin who finds himself alone in his ancestral home 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, events take flight on darkly comic wings.

Mixing incredible wordsmithery, compelling storytelling with a brilliant musical score, oodles of theatricality and a touch of exquisite silliness, Raddlesham Mumps is a theatrical treat that’s perfect for lovers of Harry Potter, Lemony Snickett, Tim Burton, & The Brothers Grimm! Suitable for 7+

Why's it special?

- It's a kind of homecoming - The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps received its first public reading at the Union Club 3 years ago

- It's the only London performance of The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps in 2020

- The unique and special atmosphere of the Union Club will provide the perfect setting for this semi staged performance.

- Limited availability - so do book now
