Cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis*. Every now and then an idea strikes that seems extremely absurd and yet at the same time bizarrely fitting. A tribute concert to the sequel to the ultimate in gruelling terror... and the King of Rock'n'Roll is such an idea. Brilliantly executed: winner of Best Show and Best Musical at Leicester Comedy Festival 2017. 'Sure-fire hit. Without doubt the best show I've seen in ages' (Bob Slayer). *Presley 2017 Recommended

A baffling but brilliant re-telling of the film The Evil Dead 2 via the songs of Elvis Presley, this works far better than the premise would suggest! Even if you don't know the film, you will be swept along with the singalong potential, hilarious lyrics and sight gags. Starting at midnight in an ideal room at the Monkey Barrel, it's a great way to end the day.
