Is That A Bolt In Your Neck

Inspired by the gothic horror movies of the 1930's - think Frankenstein, Dracula, haunted houses, myterious moaning and creaky floorboards - you're in for a rollicking ride of spooky japes, surreal and hilarious slapstick, daft scary music and magical illusion.

With over 10 years in the business, Gonzo Moose Theatre Company join Live & Local with this inventive show inspired by gothic horror movies of the 1930s. Is That a Bolt In Your Neck? is a fast-paced, rollicking ride mixing spooky paranoia, surreal nightmare and frantic farce. A family show that is packed full of hilarious slapstick, verbal wit, live music and magical illusion.

As lightening flashes across the sky, the rugged silhouette of an old dark house looms into view. Lost in a storm, this seems like the only possible refuge – but what happens when you hear mysterious moaning in the middle of the night? Behind every door lurks unimaginable horror…

This inventive and gripping comedy horror features three fearless actors performing over 20 characters in just 75 minutes of action with an array of excellent props as well as daft puppets. With comedy and thrills galore, you’ll gasp, laugh and be amazed at the horrific experiments, mind-boggling love and the sensational death-defying finale.

Founders Mark and Paschale trained together at Circomedia, the UK's premier centre for circus with theatre. Drawing on their backgrounds in physical theatre, circus, street theatre and cabaret, they combine improvisation, clowning, slapstick, puppetry and music to produce a distinctive and visually inventive style of eccentric comedy theatre that attracts both young and old. This show is no exception and there is a little something for everyone.
