About the Show Less...

A completely fictitious, untrue, comedy about the poisoning of a Russian dissident in London (or maybe just an Oscar Wilde classic). Read More >

Legal theatrical disclaimer – Peepolykus absolutely deny all allegations that in Spyski they might be about to unleash a completely fictitious, untrue, comedy about the poisoning of a Russian dissident in London.

There is no way they are working on a fast-paced thriller of international espionage and global politics, which contains shocking revelations about the world we live in.

All you will see is an Oscar Wilde classic. We can’t say any more than that – there is a man in a dark suit watching us. And watching you.

Over the past 10 years Peepolykus have won fans worldwide with their hilarious collision of verbal surprises and visual ingenuity. Now, following their acclaimed West End hit, The Hound Of The Baskervilles, they are turning their hand to Oscar Wilde.

Or are they?

Go with an open mind and wear a disguise.
