The Fenland Screamers & Other Boggy Tales at Seckford Theatre

A hilarious musical alternative to the Christmas panto

Eastern Angles return with their 30th Christmas show in 'The Fenland Screamers & Other Boggy Tales' by Pat Whymark & Julian Harries. This eccentric festive musical comedy tours to Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge from 9th – 19th January 2019.

They were invited to see out the Old Year – but would they ever see in the New?!It is the 30th December, 1930. Young amateur sleuth siblings Sloppy & Sixpence arrive at a remote house in the middle of Clinker Fen, invited by a distant relative to celebrate the New Year. Tempted by the idea of a grand weekend party, they find the place deserted apart from the creepy butler, Tangent. He is expecting them and despite their misgivings, they decide to stay. Other guests arrive, all strangers to one another, and as the fog descends, cutting them off from the outside world, they pass the time by telling stories. It becomes apparent that they all have a guilty secret, and are unnerved when Tangent tells them the local legend of the Fenland Screamers, avenging spirits who emerge from the bogs to drag the guilty back down into the mire. When one of the guests mysteriously disappears, they all begin to fear for their lives. Can Sloppy & Sixpence solve the mystery before the Screamers come again and take them all, one by one?

The cast of five include Joe Leat (The Mystery of St Finnigan’s Elbow, Everything Must Go) and Geri Allen (Stoat Hall). From the sublime to the ridiculous you can expect a quirky quick paced farce punctuated with original catchy songs. Suitable for kids both sides of 40! This eccentric festive musical comedy tours to Seckford Theatre in Woodbridge from 9th – 19th January 2019.
