About

"Remember what it says in the bible: aim for the stomach and he'll bleed heavily but won't die straight away." Romance! Adventure! Murder! Aristocrat Eddie Spangler and valet Jeffrey must learn the meaning of these words and more in this new knockabout Edwardian comedy. Delight in their capers, mix-ups, and the dead bodies left in their wake. We follow Eddie Spangler, an incompetent but optimistic Englishman and his loyal valet, Jeffrey, as a simple matchmaking quest quickly deteriorates into a race against time when the Machiavellian forces of the aristocracy move to wreak their vengeance. Lord Wiggins is set to inherit Rhodesia upon his marriage to Emily Rhodes, but their romance is faltering. It is up to Eddie and Jeffrey to sort Wiggins out as quickly and violently as possible. Meanwhile - the evil Lord Biggins lurks in the shadows, waiting to execute dark schemes of his own... From a sell-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe comes the world's first 2.5 dimensional show set in a world where every prop and set piece is made out of cardboard. Think The Play That Goes Wrong meets Jeeves and Wooster meets Diary of a Nobody with a little bit of American Psycho thrown in for good measure.
