After the double funeral of his parents, seven-year-old Crispin inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps. He finds himself in a huge empty house with only an ancient butler for company. And it’s when this butler begins to tell Crispin about the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his deeply eccentric ancestors that the story takes flight on darkly comic wings.
Celebrated poet and broadcaster Murray Lachlan Young stars in the thrilling new family production, The Mystery of Raddlesham Mumps, which will be performed at the Theatre by the Lake in Keswick on 26th February. A theatrical treat that’s sure to tickle the funnybones of young and old, The Mystery of Raddlesham Mumps is perfect for lovers of Harry Potter, Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and The Brothers Grimm.
