About: The Doubtful Guest

The Doubtful Guest
Inspired by the Book by Edward Gorey
Directed by Shôn Dale-Jones
It came seventeen years ago – and to this day, it has shown no intention of going away…
When an uninvited and strangely fantastical creature finds its way into a very normal household, its pure existence wreaks havoc. As it challenges their strict routines and descends the family into chaos, they search desperately for ways of dealing with the peculiar behaviour of their doubtful guest.
Following the success of The Impostor, award-winning theatre company Hoipolloi return to Watford as they bring to life Edward Gorey’s humorous and sinister tale of adolescence and mayhem.
Beautifully comic, delightfully dark and full of theatrical invention, this show will appeal to adults, children and mischievous misfits of all ages.
“Masters of inventive theatre” The Times
