21 years after it came kicking and screaming into the world, The Pitchfork Disney has come of age…
Ten years ago something terrible happened to Presley and Haley. Since then they have lived alone in their dead parents’ house. But one night their safe isolation is shattered by the arrival of Cosmo Disney, who confronts them with the scariest question of all… What exactly happened to their parents?
When it premiered at London’s Bush Theatre in 1991, The Pitchfork Disney caused a sensation. With its barrage of barbaric and magical imagery, its gleaming dark comedy and catastrophic air of violence and sexual tension, audiences were left breathless, intoxicated and, in some cases, fleeing in terror.
This is an unmissable opportunity to go watch a contemporary classic.
