Celebrating their 20th anniversary, comedy ensemble Spymonkey returns to Liverpool Playhouse for five nights June 4–8 with Cooped.

Described as Hitchcock’s Rebecca meets The Pink Panther, Spymonkey’s take on pulp gothic romance overflows with farce and physical comedy. A spooky mansion, a plucky young heroine and a handsome English aristocrat. Add a German butler and a Spanish soap star.

Spymonkey returns after its 2018 festive hit A Christmas Carol, celebrated as one of the Playhouse’s most successful Christmas shows ever.

The Brighton-based group is touring a handful of venues in the UK before heading to the USA.

Suitable ages 14+. Running time 85 minutes.
