Thank you!

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 @ gmail.com.

KREEPY KENSINGTON

Our first production for 2019 was "Kreepy Kensington", a historical walking tour written and designed by Oily Rag Theatre co-runner Shannon Norfolk. We had a sell-out season, information on the production is below.

February: 16, 17, 19, 21, 24, 25, 27 at 7.30 p.m.
March: 1, 3, 4, 7, 10, 11, 13, 14 at 7 p.m.

All tickets are $20.00 with a discount for groups of six or more.

As this is a walking tour rather than a conventional show, the audience is limited to 20 per performance to maximise everyone's comfort and enjoyment of the experience.
