The Flop

The Flop

A Hijinx Production in Association with Spymonkey

The Flop title graphic

Paris. 1657ish. Impotence is illegal. When a member of the aristocracy is accused of being less than upstanding, his wounded pride leads him towards a monumental and very public flop. But can a cast of total idiots save a show about a flop… from being one?

Creators of Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2016 hit Meet Fred, team up with clown supremoes Spymonkey, to present an anarchic, slightly rude, hilarious slice of stupidity, with live music and unfeasibly large wigs.

Contains strong language and adult themes, age guidance 14+.

“A wonderfully silly anarchic hour of total madness”
The British Theatre Guide

“A hoot, an utterly improbable and saucy farce featuring a brilliant integrated cast”
The Independent

“It’s a winner”
The Stage

“A brilliantly entertaining French Farce”
Broadway Baby
