Winter may be coming but things are getting hot and scary at London's Pleasance.

Alongside Edinburgh transfers, Dominic Garfield's hip-hop musical The Concrete Jungle Book sites Rudyard Kipling’s classic in inner-city Britain, and there's London Horror Festival, this year featuring twenty shows to have audiences jumping in their seats.

Anthony Alderson, director of the Pleasance Theatres Trust said, "this eclectic season shows off the variety that we at the Pleasance celebrate and encourage. With the Charlie Hartill Theatre Reserve recipient transferring to London from an acclaimed and successful Edinburgh run and an exciting new Christmas show from the legend Ginger Johnson, our Islington spaces are offering something for everyone across the next few months."

The programme also includes Screen 9, Skank, CWM RAG The Second Spaffin, Fritz & Matlock and Dumbledore Is So Gay.

To mark the festivities, Ginger Johnson and David Cumming bring Dog Show to the main house—and things could get ruff!
