In a controversial move to promote classic children’s novels, publishers have released all the stories far too filthy for the page! The Infamous Five is an hour-long sketch show based around the theme of rejected children’s books, but stretches to cover a range of perversely educational topics from Brexiteering roman senators to feminist cat-calling builders. Our narrative follows the adventures of five chipper, middle-class characters whose provincial cheer is tapered as they are exposed to the dark mundanity of Nottingham's suburbs. Come along for a night of sketch that will ruin your childhood retrospectively!
