Thank you to everyone who came along to the sell-out season of Kreepy Kensington . We have been asked whether we will do a public season of the walk outside of the Fringe later this year. We do not have any plans for this currently, but will be sure to post here and on Facebook if we do. If you would like us to do the walk as a private once-off for a group this may be possible, please get in touch to discuss at oilyragtheatre @ We are now taking a short break before rehearsals for our next production, Pilgrims , will get underway in May.
