Merrie Hell

Merrie Hell

Get nasty this nativity. . . The Divine David Hoyle and Richard Jerry Springer Thomas come together with a trashy, meaty buffet of festive filth and darkly funny songs. Stick your big toe into a laddered stocking stuffed with Crimbo melodies redolent of tangerines, tinsel, telly, tears and terror. Having previously worked together on award-winning feature film Uncle David, our two bad fairies Hoyle and Thomas bring their own alternative Christmas celebration to Soho Downstairs for nights of sin and song. Join them . . . or else!

written and performed by David Hoyle and Richard Thomas
