PREPARE to be mocked and shocked by Stratford’s newest resident, Seymour Stiffs.
Comedy as we know it is dead and buried in his chapel of unrest and a new age of bouffant and cabaret comedy where there is no place to hide is born.
If the anticipation of the unknown making the audience grin and giggle nervously wasn’t enough to create a spooky atmosphere, the wind from Storm Desmond whipping around the gazebo-covered outdoor theatre certainly was.
Broad of shoulder and standing at over six foot tall, Seymour Stiffs had an unnerving presence among an intimate audience – he stares everyone out with menacing eyes and has a nose for shy guests.
Audience participation goes without question in this show – if you are the chosen victim of the Undertaker, there is nothing you can do to escape.
Fear not though, his bark is worse than his bite and you will leave his chapel of unrest with a new found appreciation for life.
This isn’t a show for the faint-hearted but thoroughly recommendable as an alternative comedy night because no one is safe from ‘the Jester, the Joker, the Dark Provoker.’
After finding success at the Edinburgh Fringe in August, the Undertaker has chosen The Tudor House on Sheep Street to be his new home on Friday nights.
Be sure to wrap up warm for this chilling show in The Tudor House’s outdoor theatre.
See Seymour Stiffs at The Tudor House on Friday nights at 7.30pm in his ‘Chapel of Unrest’ and 8.30pm for his ‘Special Moving Service’.
Tickets cost £9 per show or £15 for both. Call 01789 298070 to book.
