Booking Ahead: Joseph Morpurgo’s Hammerhead on tour

Joseph Morpurgo presents his masterpiece: a boundary-smashing, 9-hour adaption of Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein. Or is it?

Outlandishly funny multimedia comedy and new voodoo from the distinguished mind of the 2015 Edinburgh Comedy Award nominee, three-time 2016 Chortle Award winner and BBC Radio Four star JOSEPH MORPURGO, featuring surreal set-pieces, vivid comic writing, subliminal pulse signals – and monsters.

Following a completely sold-out run at the 2017 Edinburgh Festival Fringe, and four sold-out weeks at London’s Soho Theatre, Hammerhead now embarks on a nationwide tour this summer – which finishes at London’s Southbank Centre in July.
