This show is being performed at Tobacco Factory Theatre, NOT at The Wardrobe Theatre

It’s a hook to the left! And then a jab to the right! Let’s do the time-warp back to 1976; a world without men and women – only lovers, fighters, dancers and all-nighters and where the mean streets of Philadelphia are filled with campy song.

When small-time boxer Rocky Featherboa is challenged to the fight of their life, the Italian Stallion must risk it all and learn to float like a butterfly, sting like a bee, dance like a rock’n’roll star and sing like a queen!

After the stunning successes of Goldilock, Stock & Three Smoking Bears, Resevoir Mogs and Muppits Die Hard, The Wardrobe Theatre brings you another of its signature, darkly comic, adult only shows – a loving, playful fusion of the boxing classic with the cross-dressing cult musical masterpiece. A scary-sexy, knock-out comedy that always punches below the belt, ROCKY SHOCK HORROR is a show you won’t forget, however hard you try…

“A smash hit must-see… Fantastically entertaining.”
★★★★ The Fix

“There are laughs aplenty, not the polite laughter of the theatre crowd but real genuine guffaws from an audience with a drink in hand and ready to have a good time.”
★★★★ The Reviews Hub

“The outright winner of the comedy heavyweight title… Take a ringside seat, and have a good roll round in the aisles of the Wardrobe Theatre, punchdrunk with glee.”
Bristol 24/7
