Edward Gorey’s humorous and yet sneakily sinister tale of adolescence and mayhem is now brought to life by award-winning theatre company Hoipolloi.
It came seventeen years ago – and to this day, it has shown no intention of going away…
When an uninvited and strangely fantastical creature finds its way into a seemingly normal household, its pure existence wreaks havoc. As it challenges their strict routines and descends the family into chaos, they search desperately for ways of dealing with the peculiar behaviour of their doubtful guest.
Discover this delightfully dark and conveniently curious comedy for anyone who is (or knows!) a mischievous misfit.
Produced by arrangement with The Edward Gorey Charitable Trust.
