How to Catch a Krampus
International drag collective Sink the Pink and Pleasance Theatre present a dark and terrifying twist on the traditional Christmas theatre show.
Based on Victorian melodrama and the myth of the Krampus (a horned eastern European Christmas beast with the head of a goat and long hideous claws, of course), the story follows the scandalous exploits of a part-time spirit medium/full-time con-artist. Her shadowy life takes an even darker turn when her made-up magic suddenly starts to get results. When faced with certain death and growing suspicion from everyone around her, can she catch the Krampus and save her own skin in the process?
Inspired by London's bawdy and dangerous theatrical past and a love of classic British Horror - think Sweeney Todd meets the Wicker Man - How To Catch A Krampus is a Christmas story that's strictly for grown-ups.
