Kill the Beast: Director's Cut at The Lowry, Manchester, 30–31 October 2019, from £7.25 - Book now

Just in time for Halloween 2019, the multi-award-winning comedy mavericks Kill the Beast return to The Lowry, Salford with Director’s Cut.  Combining live film, original music, an abundance of wigs and a problematic monkey, Director’s Cut is a fast-paced and ridiculous adventure that takes place on a haunted Hollywood film set.

A fast-paced and ridiculous adventure that takes place on a haunted Hollywood film set.

We’re over the moon that Kill The Beast return to Salford with this haunting tale of Hollywood hilarity. If you didn’t catch it the first time around – now is your chance. Don’t leave it too long to get your tickets.

Kill the Beast’s previous productions, He Had Hairy Hands and Don’t Wake The Damp, were well received by the critics – receiving a plethora of four and five-star reviews- they played to sell-out audiences across the UK. They also became Associate Artists at The Lowry following the success of their debut show, The Boy Who Kicked Pigs.

Director’s Cut is a comedy-horror spectacular

With a combination of darkly comic scripts, slick physicality and original use of projection, Kill the Beast have established their own signature around fresh and inventive comedy theatre. Director’s Cut promises to be their most ambitious show to date, a comedy-horror spectacular which takes place on the set of a 70’s B movie. Think Noises Off meets The Exorcist, or Carrie meets Singing in the Rain and you’re almost there.
