The Quarry Theatre nervously presents

The Twins Macabre: Playtime

Thursday 26th October, 7.00pm

As seen on BBC3’s ‘Live at the Electric’ and BBC Radio 4’s ‘Sketchorama’, ‘The Twins Macabre’ is a dark character-comedy duo like no other.

Maurice and Ivy Macabre are 10-year-old psychic siblings who have a penchant for finger painting and murder. Having run away from the circus, (which mysteriously burnt down causing their parents to perish…) the pair conjure the souls of the damned through twisted sketches and songs.

Come and witness the phantasmagorical feats of the twins as they relive their circus days.
