Burnley

Imagine a bejewelled casket making its enigmatic way around your town and wondering ‘What is that, who are they and just what’s going on here’? Now imagine the thrill of being chosen to peep inside whilst others can only stand and gawp, slack-jawed. ‘What can be inside you hear them cry’? Well, stand ready people, for we have discovered a new species, preserved its last egg and it’s about to ….no that could never happen!

This show is serious, funny and seriously funny!
