We've got news. There’s a Monkion in every attic. Humans and Monkions have lived in the same world, separate dimension, for centuries. Now the secrets out, the inter-dimensional portal is opening.

A truly unique and wholeheartedly worthwhile experience. Having seen their show "Experiment Human" at the last Fringe, this was one of my most anticipated show of this Fringe and I was not disappointed. The venue was perfect for this show and there was a true sense of individuality to the show with amazing interaction and a great sense of humour that got us laughing along altogether.

This may be the most extraordinary show of the Fringe. It is compelling in its intimacy, mysterious and enthralling in its creativity, and is driven by a strange and sacred bond that forms between performers and audience, and within the audience itself. Go to this, embrace it, and you will never forget it.

Completely daft and somehow totally engaging - we loved its total commitment to its surreal, not quite fully-formed world. Great performers who created a playful, communal atmosphere with the audience, fun venue. Go and see it, it will probably be completely unlike anything else you see.
