The Hen & Chickens Theatre (109 St Pauls Road London N1 2NA)
A murder! A funeral! A will-reading! A séance…! If you like Sky News, you’ll love Kill Phil.
Hector and Laramie Van Heusen’s mysterious death and the bequeathing of their only begotten son – who is a man – to a complete stranger – who is another man – sets in motion a murderous train of destruction, slapstick, betrayal, puns, communion with the dead and betrayal by pun that can only end badly*.
Kill Phil features a what’s who of the sketch comedy scene; Marny Godden (The Grandees), Steve Evans (The Dutch Elm Conservatoire), James Wren (Greedy) and Phil Whelans (Pros from Dover.) One of them will die. But which one? Which one? All will be revealed in… Kill Phil.
If you can find it in your heart to come along, we’d be most grateful
* Show has good ending.
