The Quentin Dentin Show

  • The Arts Theatre Great Newport Street London, WC2H 7JB United Kingdom (map)

MAY 16 - MAY 28

Monday – Saturday, 10pm, 70 mins



The cult hit Edinburgh Fringe rock musical is reborn in London! This new, original musical by Henry Carpenter set tongues a-wagging at the Edinburgh Fringe 2015, and now runs Above the Arts Theatre this May.

Keith and Nat’s relationship needs intensive care. So when they accidentally summon the supernatural therapist Quentin Dentin out of the radio, it seems like a dream come true. But the charming Mr Dentin’s mission of happiness has an altogether darker purpose… also, he just won’t stop singing.

The Quentin Dentin Show is an “extraordinary and eccentric” (Broadway Baby) exploration of life, love and therapy, featuring a live rock band and a full chorus of fish, ‘friends’ and lemons.

Significantly reworked since last summer’s Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the show is now in its seventh iteration after a residency at Rich Mix and research and development at the National Theatre Studio.


“Frank N. Furter/Jesus/David Bowie hybrid new rock musical: what’s not to like?”  (The Play’s The Thing)

★★★★ “A weird and wonderful show that keeps you guessing” (Arts Award Voice)

★★★★ “unique, startling and very funny (…) like nothing I’ve ever seen” (MusicalTalk.co.uk)
