Joining an already exciting programme for the coming months, the newly announced shows also include two seasonal productions and the world premiere tour of Leo Butler’s All You Need Is LSD.
All You Need is LSD – 14th-17th November
“Kicking things off, the critically acclaimed company Told by an Idiot team up with one of the UK’s finest playwrights for the first ever production of All You Need is LSD. Inspired by Leo Butler’s own participation in LSD medical trials in 2015, this exhilarating comedy offers a darkly humorous look at the ongoing drugs debate.
Over The Top – 1st-19th December
“There’s seasonal comedy in Nick Walker’s latest “alternative pantomime”, aimed at an adult audience. Set in 1918 amidst the raging battles of the First World War, the Sleeping Beauty-inspired Over the Top features an all-female cast, following a touring suffragette acting troupe as they get stuck behind enemy lines. Led by Sergeant Beauty, a crack team of daredevil troops set off on a perilous rescue mission – but will any of them make it back to Blighty in time for Christmas?
