The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps

The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps

Written by Murray Lachlan Young | Presented by Matthew Linley Creative Project

Co-produced by Action Transport Theatre and Eastern Angles

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

In this brand-new show, celebrated poet Murray Lachlan Young mixes compelling storytelling and poetry with a brilliant score, a healthy dose of physical theatre and a touch of silliness.

Suitable for 7 years +
