Rottenchop's Revenge

A comedy thriller, Rottenchop’s Revenge, from Durham’s Gala sees panto heroes take on the rottenest villain of them all, Rupert Von Rottenchops, who wreaks havoc in Durham in a tale of kidnap, blackmail and all-round treachery.

Without any pantomimes to perform in this year, a group of favourite characters from pantos past team up to take him on.

Written by the theatre’s regular panto writers, Neil Armstrong and Paul Hartley, this online filmed adventure comes to the Gala web site in four episodes. Screening from Monday 14 December to Thursday 17 December each day at 6PM, the episodes will remain online to watch until midday on Christmas Eve.
