The mysterious Curiositorium and its countless exhibits of wonder and terror have lain dormant for years, hidden beneath a more socially acceptable museum. Can the mild-mannered curator unlock its secrets? Can the terrifying DeClaw finally defeat his nemeses, the even more terrifying Shadow People? And will the loveable experiment Sputtoms ever be a real boy, or must Professor Cribbens destroy him and start again?

The Curiositorium is a fantastical, family-friendly new sketch show by award-winning comedy pushers and London Sketchfest 2015 finalists The Dead Secrets. Through a whirlwind of comedy sketches, the audience will be taken on a raucous, surreal and absurd adventure full of extraordinary characters, into a world of science, magic, intrigue, wonder and curiositation. Discover the answers to questions you didn't know could be asked!

The Dead Secrets are a six-strong sketch comedy troupe who formed in 2012 after several years performing together in improvised comedy shows in Oxford. Their first sketch show, Bulletproof Jest, premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2013 and won the 'Best Comedy Show' Award at the Buxton Fringe in 2014. The Dead Secrets write, perform, direct and film their own material, and to date have only broken one camera.
