Delve into Depravity and Die Laughing
Following their sell-out 5 STAR run of Virtuous Flock at this year’s Edinburgh Fringe, N10 Productions bring this gothic black comedy to London. N10’s exciting and energetic young cast again wowed critics and audiences with this sharply observed World Premiere.
Billy Barrett has written a hilariously-filthy, shamefully-cruel musical comedy. Think Oscar Wilde meets Edgar Allan Poe! Inspired by Le Théâtre du Grand-Guignol and the Victorian weekly serial booklets, The Penny Dreadfuls, Virtuous Flock will take audiences back to the era of flamboyant melodrama and lurid gothic horror.
Virtuous Flock tells the gruesome tale of the murder of three women at the hands of Penny Dreadful. Penny, an abused child from an Irish convent boarding school, takes revenge on the women who are left in her late father’s dilapidated mansion; the stepmother, the maid and the mistress. Dark, dirty and disturbingly funny with live music and songs, this is the blackest comedy you will see this year. It breaks taboos and makes you wonder how depravity could be so horrifically humorous.

“Wonderfully degenerate… deliciously sordid work of art… supremely executed”– Broadway Baby
