Details

With its UK premiere earlier this year at The Drum, Theatre Royal Plymouth’s fast-paced, hilarious and (slightly) bonkers Monster Raving Loony brings its party fun and punkish anarchy to London.

Using the life and exploits of Screaming Lord Sutch to examine the state of the nation and Britain’s post-war identity crisis, Samuel James reprises his critically acclaimed role as Sutch, a ventriloquist channeling the cultural voices around him.

Seen through the eyes of one extraordinary man, Monster Raving Loony tells the story of Sutch through a cavalcade of comic characters from musical hall to Monty Python, panto to Partridge. Can our British sense of humour begin to uncover who we are, where we have been, and where we are going next?

A Theatre Royal Plymouth production written by James Graham.
