The Swell Mob

From the 14th August i'll be up in Edinburgh working with Flabbergast Theatre again doing some walkabout in their new cabaret/immersive production. 

"Submerge yourself in the delights of our 1830s taproom; dance, sing, gamble, and cheat through this decaying world. Swig a London porter and become the hero, or swill bathtub gin and relish in the carousel. This night promises to thrill with award-winning clown, puppetry and cabaret. Lose yourself with The Swell Mob."
