A horror comedy which won a top award at the Edinburgh Festival fringe is being staged at Sheringham.
He Had Hairy Hands is a 1970s detective mystery – a tale of a small town plagued by a terrible werewolf, and of the people who are determined to uncover its true identity.
Producers say is a 'Scooby Doo meets The League of Gentlemen' fusion with a bit of The Wicker Man thrown in for good measure. The drama was selected as a 'top act' by the BBC, at the fringe last year and earned a raft of 4 and 5 star reviews.
The Sheringham show, which is supported by Arts Council England, is on Monday October 19.
It is dark comedy and physical theatre and combines original music, beautiful costumes and innovative animated projection in a twisted family show – for anyone aged 12-plus.
It is staged by the Kill the Beast company, which consists of five young comedy lovers, who met while studying at the University of Warwick.
Clem Garritty, Oliver Jones, Zoe 'Bob' Roberts, David Cumming and Natasha Hodgson all bonded over their love of classic horror, dark comedy and ridiculous slap-stick.
