Happily Never After @ London Horror Festival

The Maydays present: Happily Never After @ London Horror Festival

An Improvised Gothic Musical Tale

Award-winning improvisers The Maydays are back and better than ever with this ever-changing, skin-prickling tale inspired by the warped imaginations of Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and the Brothers Grimm. Starting with your suggestion, The Maydays take you on a bone-chilling journey, meeting the grotesque and the innocent, weaving a fantastical, spontaneous story full of black comedy and haunting live music.

After sell-out shows at Edinburgh, Barcelona and VAULT Festivals, Happily Never After is a word-of-mouth success that raises the bar on what’s possible with improvised theatre.

Sunday 13th October 2019, 7pm-8pm
