The Penny Dreadfuls

With hilarious one off scenes interwoven with various recurring storylines, ‘The Penny Dreadfuls’ have created yet another highly intelligent production. The versatility of their acting combined with their obvious talent for comedy meant that it wasn’t just the sketches themselves that were well crafted. The fluidity of the scenes with their impeccable timing meant that none of the jokes were lost on the captivated audience, whilst their inventive use of the available props added to the drollery. Highlights include a very well done parody of the ‘Twilight’ films that included lyrics taken straight from Eminem, and continuing subtle pleas to buy their t-shirts, in what was a highly enjoyable show.
