Drac & Jill

Christmas 2019 with The Wardrobe Theatre - a brand new dark comedy from the company that spawned Oedipuss In Boots, Reservoir Mogs, Rocky Shock Horror and Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears

21st Nov 2019 - 19th Jan 2020
7.45pm (plus 2pm matinees) | All Tickets £15 | Ages 16+

Under the milky glow of the full moon and through the twisted limbs of the Transylvanian woods, strange blood-chilling noises can be heard coming from inside Count Drac’s castle. Far away, within the crumbling walls of a remote hilltop monastery, Sister Jill has dedicated her life to chastity and fetching pails of water. But when a young virgin is found dead, two worlds come tumbling down and it falls to an unlikely hero to uncover the truth and save the necks victim!

Drac & Jill is a fast, smart and devilishly funny new comedy from The Wardrobe Theatre, makers of Oedipuss In Boots, Reservoir Mogs, Rocky Shock Horror, Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears, Muppits Die Hard and more. Directed by Tom Brennan (The Wardrobe Ensemble’s 1972: The Future of Sex), don’t miss this brand new adult comedy mash-up with big belly laughs, original music, unforgettable drama and high stakes action! This Christmas, does blood run thicker than water?

“A supercharged helping of festive filth.”
★★★★ The Observer

“A rich pop-culture tapestry, stitched together with a fluent cinematic vernacular, comic virtuosity and technical finesse.”
★★★★ The Stage

“Enthusiasm, verve and terrific comic timing… It’s all fantastic fun: bawdy, suggestive, silly and mischievous.”
★★★★★ Stage Talk

“The funniest, crudest, most heart-warming theatre… Do not miss this!”
★★★★★ The Fix

“Hilarious, bizarre, discombobulating, ridiculous, maybe even insane… but utterly spot-on throughout, with underneath it a hidden degree of cleverness and skill.”
Bristol 24/7

“Hands down the funniest thing I have seen in ages… Dark, sexy and brilliantly scripted.”
Weston-Super-Mum
