Multi-award-winning comedy troupe Kill the Beast (“a scorchingly talented young company” – Time Out) present Monsters For Monsters: A Festival for the Weird and Horrid at the New Diorama theatre 18 – 23 June, celebrating classic sci-fi and comedy cinema.
Known for their cinematic comedy shows (The Boy Who Kicked Pigs and He Had Hairy Hands), this festival will pay homage to the films that have inspired their new sci-fi comedy/horror Don’t Wake the Damp. The films include The Thing, Alien, Tron and The Fly, as well as a ‘mystery film’ to be screened on the final night of the festival.
Natasha from Kill the Beast said: “We so loved re-visiting these classic films when researching the new show, we wanted to share the experience with fellow sci-fi, horror and comedy nerds. Ivan Ooze! Remember Ivan Ooze?!”
Each night will consist of a film quiz and live sneak peek of their new show (the only chance for Londoners to take a look before it hits Edinburgh), and then a screening. The company hopes you will join them in the bar for a fervent discussion afterwards.
