The year is 1974, the sleepy town is Hemlock-Under-Lye and when werewolf attacks threaten teatime, there’s only one person you can call.

An award-winning comedy by Kill the Beast, He Had Hairy Hands is a 1970’s detective werewolf mystery wrapped in a hilarious Hammer Horror. An American Werewolf In London meets Twin Peaks, The Wicker Man meets Scooby Doo, and The League of Gentlemen meets your fluffiest nightmare.

Winners of the 2014 Peter Brook Festival Award, Kill the Beast promise hilarity, mystery and mayhem. Having splattered the UK with the acclaimed The Boy Who Kicked Pigs, they return with this new tale of supernatural slaughter – combining beautiful projections, original music and quite an important pigeon.This show is OFS-approved. Someone from the Old Fire Station team has seen this production, and gives it the thumbs-up.

Lock up your pets and batten down the battenbergs,
He Had Hairy Hands is waiting…

“A deliciously macabre affair, rich and witty in its references, brilliantly detailed.” **** The Stage
