Following sell-out shows at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival, the Flabbergast Theatre company descends on Walton to capture adults’ minds.

In an improvised crossover cabaret featuring Bunraku puppetry, the Balkan bad boys of the world of puppets will take to the stage at the Riverhouse Barn.

Boris and Sergey, dubbed the greatest vaudevillian double act of all time, present a plethora of pleasing plays and skits, with riotous exploits, malarkey, molestation and mirth of magnitude previously unseen in Walton, all to be expected.

On the run from the dark ones, who the duo lost their souls to in a card game, Boris and Sergey try to pull together enough money to pay off their debts while unsuccessfully attempting to maintain a low profile.

Unaware that the nature of their debt rules out any negotiation, the pair struggle on in poverty attempting to swindle and pull the wool over many people’s eyes on their way to freedom.

Boris and Sergey’s Vaudevillian Adventure; Riverhouse Barn, Manor Road, Walton, January 23 to 25, 8pm; £12 adults, £10 concessions; visit thelittleboxoffice.com/riverhouse.
