Jules Verne meets The Goonies via Stranger Things
– a retro 80s adventure story for all the family.
‘A fun-filled nostalgia fest.’
Did you ever own a Walkman or play Donkey Kong? We made this show for you. We made it for people, like you, who recognise the ‘Pshhhkkkkkkrrrrkakingkakingkakingtshchchchchchchchcch*ding*ding*ding’ sound of a modem, who were scared watching the Goonies and who, like us, couldn’t tell you the mobile numbers of their nearest and dearest but would still be able to call their best school-friend’s home number. Ah! And for your children, of course.
Incorporating many of the elements of our previous work (live music, light-hearted audience interaction, and physical comedy), we use a recipe of Dip Dabs, walkie talkies and an unashamed dose of Steven Spielberg movies to create a retro-futuristic adventure for all the family.
‘Smart, fast and very, very funny.’
