Event description
Celebrated poet and broadcaster Murray Lachlan Young (Radio 4, 2 and BBC 6 Music poet in residence,) presents his thrilling new family show

About this Event

After the windswept double funeral of his parents, 7-year-old Crispin (or Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps to give him his full name) inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps. He finds himself in a huge empty house with only an ancient butler for company. And when that butler, Kenilworth, begins to tell him about the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his deeply eccentric ancestors the story takes flight on darkly comic wings.

In this brand-new show Murray mixes compelling story-telling and poetry with a brilliant score, a healthy dose of physical theatre and a touch of silliness.

A gothic tale which will make you and your family shudder and laugh out loud!

Suitable for 7 years – 107 years!

‘A fearsome but funny, perfectly metrical gothic tale of dynasty, death, revenge and hope. Fantastic word play, lots of gruesome. Lovely moral’ -Michael Rosen

‘I urge you to adorn yourselves with him’ -Fi Glover BBC Radio 4 -

‘Murray Lachlan Young is simply brilliant, hysterically funny and strangely moving.’ -Claudia Winkleman
