“I took a sh*t on your food, then I vomited on it and then I stamped around in it with my little sticky feet. And all because I don’t like you.”

In a kill-or-be-killed fight for sanity, one man is determined to conquer his fear of flies, but as darkness falls, what is that ominous hum behind the door?

Co-produced with theatre company Pins & Needles Productions (Mr Popper’s Penguins), we present this absurdist tale that lefts audiences’ skin crawling with fear and minds buzzing with excitement. Featuring original music mixed live on stage, Flies is “like children’s TV on hallucinogens” told through a fusion of theatre, stand-up comedy and gig

Directed by Emma Earle & Hannah Drake

"Flies is an original and inventive piece of theatre, brimming with Les Enfants Terribles’ trademark mixture of storytelling, music and innovative staging"


"This production is absurd, ambitious and absolutely non sensical"


"This black comedy is filled with ‘buzzing’ inventive silliness in a totally surreal production"
