Description

To celebrate our 20th anniversary as ‘the reigning monarchs of physical comedy’ (The Age Melbourne), Spymonkey revived one of their favourite shows, a deliciously demented take on the pulp gothic romance: Hitchcock’s Rebecca meets The Pink Panther.

One of the funniest pieces of theatre you will ever see, performed by four of the greatest clowns working in Britain.Time Out

Overflowing with brilliant characters, rip-roaring farce and virtuoso physical comedy, this is the show which made Spymonkey an international comedy sensation from Just For Laughs Montreal to Sydney Opera House.
