The Tron Theatre is hosting its new production and its certain to entertain those of us who love black comedies. Constables Blunt and Gobbel have one last duty to fulfil before they clock off on Christmas Eve: to tell the old couple at number 58 some terrible, terrible news. But what if the shock is too much for the frail pair to bear? Maybe they’d be better off not knowing. And maybe the hapless constables would be better off if they hadn’t got themselves stuck in the middle of a lynching organized by a group of anti-paedophile vigilantes.
Multiple misunderstandings, a stray Chihuahua and an apparently transvestite vicar contribute to the escalating mayhem in Anthony Neilson’s hilarious pitch black farce which is being revised for this new Tron Theatre Company production.
Tickets are from £8 and are available here.
