Shockheaded Peter is nothing short of a gorgeously gory glory. This exquisitely gruesome piece makes one gasp and stretch one's eyes. Accompanied by shiveringly eerie songs by the Tiger Lillies, the fabulously inventive toy-theatre design transports you back to the world of Struewelpeter: nasty little nursery tales in which death is meted out to badly behaved little darlings. Improbable Theatre's production has induced squeals of delight across Europe, so book immediately for its triumphant return.
