We are pleased to announce that The Monster Hunters stage show will be returning this summer as part of the Camden Fringe.
'It's great to be able to bring Roy and Lorrimer back to the theatre - it's where they started.' Said Matthew Woodcock, who plays Roy Steel and co-wrote the play with Peter Davis.
First performed as part of the 2011 London Horror Festival, The Monster Hunters sees Lorrimer Chesterfield and Roy Steel called in to investigate the vampiric evil that lies behind the Discotheque of Nights. On the way, their past comes back to haunt them in the form of a hideous bog monster and an ancient Egyptian curse...
Listeners to the audio series might notice a few similarities in the stage show. 'When we came to put together an audio version, we re-used some of the stories we'd performed on stage,' Matthew explained. 'But there's a lot that's different, by virtue of working in a different medium. There are great gags that work well on stage but just wouldn't translate to audio. Episode three is a great example of this: it takes the idea of the Hand of Anubis and really fleshes it out, so to speak! It's a very different piece on audio than on stage.'
The Monster Hunters is at the Etcetera Theatre, Camden on the 4th and 5th of August at 9pm. Tickets: £10, £8 concessions and can be booked from the Camden Fringe website.
