Red Cape Black Cape return to Theatre N16 – where last time they presented a double bill of a Tarantino-esque Winnie the Pooh and a bureaucratic take on Dante’s Inferno, they now delight with a frenzy of f*cked up fairytales… don’t say you weren’t warned!
The children of Time + Space are being hunted. Terrorized by a dark and enigmatic figure. A monster feeding on blood, bones, and Fear itself... LIONS + TIGERS + BEARS features 5 actors conjuring up more than 40 characters throughout the ages and across dimensions, including a Victorian schoolgirl, a really sh*t zookeeper, a lobotomist, Myra Hindley, a robotic nurse, a chorus line, Adolf Hitler, vampires, a computer virus, and a tree. It's delightfully deranged, slightly unwholesome, totally questionable family entertainment that's completely unsuitable for children.

Founded in 2014 by writer, director, actor, producer, activist, master-builder, superhero, friend, animal-lover, and dreamer Reece Connolly, at the heart of Red Cape Black Cape is the rule that art is fun and people wearing underpants are funny. Red Cape Black Cape began to create work in association with QMTC with its debut Ed Fringe Show A Fistful of Hunny sold-out it's two week, 5-star run during 2015's festival.
