Don't Wake The Damp (2016)


Multi-award-winning comedy captains Kill the Beast present a new twisted tale, inspired by 80s sci-fi, 90s gaming and cracking superhero theme-tunes.

The skyline of 2035 is looking a little strange. One by one, tower blocks are being demolished, foundations torn up. There are whispers of an evil from the deep, a damp darkness rising. But monster or no monster, June Berry won’t be leaving her home without a fight.

Combining boundary-pushing projection mapping, original music, a razor-sharp script and trademark physical comedy, Don’t Wake The Damp is a non-stop neon rollercoaster. Surreal, hilarious and visually stunning - join the Residents Association as they grab a mop and prepare for war.
