The Flop

in association with Spymonkey

Paris, 1657ish.

Impotence is illegalWhen 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 sell-out 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. 

It'll never stand up in court.
