A Big Tickle Event
Frankenstein's alive and he's about to extract your wisdom teeth!
Award-winning Penny Dreadful cordially invite you to enter the Etherdome. Take your seats for this darkly funny, true tale of 1850's America, where carnival-sideshows meet live bluegrass... and dentistry!
It's the start of the so-called Scientific Age, major surgery including amputation, heart surgery - and tooth extraction - is still carried out with only a stiff whisky or a stick to bite on. In a fairground tent, alongside tea-leaf fortune-tellers, an amazing discovery is made by accident. But who actually made it?
Mick Barnfather (Peepolykus, Right Size, Complicité) directs this extraordinary disaster-comedy, where the quest for pain relief takes a detour via lunacy, addiction and a duck pond!
Trust us this won't hurt a bit...
