Celebrated poet and broadcaster Murray Lachlan Young (BBC 6 Music, Radio 4, The Wright Stuff) presents his thrilling new family performance.

After a series of untimely deaths 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 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 dark story telling and poetry with a brilliant score, a healthy dose of physical theatre and a touch of panto in a long, tall gothic tale which will make you and your family shudder and laugh out loud!

Suitable for 7+
