Get a Life!

John Shedden and Finlay McLean (plus skeleton!) perform a series of weird and wonderful sketches, so wacky and off-the—wall, they boggle your mind!  You’ll meet a variety of hilarious characters from the land of the living  (and the dead).

Judge the Judge, be starstruck by the Astronomer, eavesdrop on the Prime Minister and the President; witness two extraordinary interviews as Hamlet and Shylock return to rewrite their stories!  And even throw your undies at Wolf  (the heartthrob) Humperhoven!

Out of this kaleidoscope of theatre, social satire, politics and parody emerges a startling view of the crazy world we live in!
