Flying violins! Speed-skating ballet dancers! Släpstick tips a nostalgic wink to comedians such as Charlie Chaplin, the Marx Brothers and Spike Jones through a spectacular collection of musical comedy turns. Rooted in music hall tradition but with a modern twist, this Dutch five-piece band are multi-talented musicians and riotous knock-about clowns. Släpstick won Spirit of the Fringe Award at last year’s Edinburgh Fringe and it’s impossible to imagine anyone leaving the theatre without a smile on their face.
Suitable for kids, big kids and those in need of cheering up… Släpstick promises laughs, gasps or your money back.
