Kill The Beast: He Had Hairy Hands
The year is 1974, the sleepy town is Hemlock-Under-Lye and when werewolf attacks threaten tea-time, there’s only one person you can call.
He Had Hairy Hands is a multi-award-winning, critically-acclaimed comedy by Kill the Beast; a 1970’s detective werewolf mystery wrapped up in a hilarious Hammer Horror. An American Werewolf In London meets Twin Peaks, The Wicker Man meets Scooby Doo, and The League of Gentlemen meets your fluffiest nightmare.
Winners of the 2014 Peter Brook Festival Award and Best Studio Show at the Manchester Theatre Awards, Kill the Beast promise hilarity, mystery and mayhem. Having splattered the UK with the acclaimed The Boy Who Kicked Pigs, they return with this new tale of supernatural slaughter - combining beautiful projections, original music and quite an important pigeon. Lock up your pets and batten down the battenbergs, He Had Hairy Hands is waiting...
A deliciously macabre affair, rich and witty in its references, brilliantly detailed. [4 stars]
