Multi award-winning comedy He Had Hairy Hands is coming to Conservatoire East, at West Suffolk College, on October 8.

Winner of the 2014 Peter Brook Festival Award and the 2014 Manchester Theatre Award for Best Studio Show, and selected as Top Act by the BBC at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, this detective play is the perfect warm-up for Halloween.

Set in the 1970s, He Had Hairy Hands tells the story of a small town plagued by a terrible werewolf, and of the people determined to uncover its true identity.

Audiences can expect a mix of Scooby Doo and The League of Gentlemen, with a dash of The Wickerman thrown in.

Combining passions for dark comedy and physical theatre, Kill The Beast’s production brings together a blend of unique visuals, amazing costumes, original music, animated projection and wickedly black humour.
