the beasts

There’s a fearsome, never-before-seen beast out there and the Royal Society of Beastologists are going to hunt it down. They’ve already photographed the Loch Ness Monster, the Beast of Bodmin and the elusive Essex Lion. But will this final mystery prove too much?

The Beastologists are gathering. Tents have been pitched, Monster Munch has been put into tiny bowls and the band are tuning up ready to celebrate. In a world of disbelievers, you have been invited to join in the search. (Note: bring binoculars and a spare pair of pants. We don’t want a repeat of last year.)

The Beasts was an outdoor show that toured festivals throughout Spring/Summer 2014.

A Lyric Hammersmith, Greenwich+Docklands International Festival, Watford Palace Theatre and Latitude Festival Production.
