About this show

A smash hit in London, New York, Washington and elsewhere, Shockheaded Peter is like nothing we've seen before. Created and performed by Julian Bleach, Anthony Cairns, Graeme Gilmour, Tamzin Griffin and Jo Pocock and directed by Phelim McDermott and Julian Crouch, this deliciously morbid, cheerfully chilling, and always entertaining production illuminates Heinrich Hoffman's classic cautionary tales and his cast of selfish, disobedient children with a whimsical and gruesomely hilarious combination of puppetry, Victorian melodrama, and musical storytelling. As delightful as it is devilish, children as young as ten years old have screamed with pleasure for the entire 90 minutes. And so will you! With live music by The Tiger Lillies.
