Playhouse – 04-08/06
The Playhouse will be showing a “deliciously demented take on the pulp gothic romance” in celebration of the UK’s leading physical comedy act, Spymonkey’s, 20th anniversary. COOPED is a story of young heroine Laura du Lay arriving in the heart of the fictional town of Northumberlandshirehampton. The “fawn like” and “plucky” exemplar Laura starts working for the reclusive Forbes Murdston, regardless of the unsettling rumours surrounding he and his ominous manservant, Klaus. She renders the family lawyer, Roger Parchment, useless, as he is too undoubtedly in love with Laura for her to confide in him regarding these rumours, and most of all her darkest fear: is Forbes the killer who lurks around in the darkness?
