Dr Blood’s Old Travelling Show

This event has passed

An imitating the dog and Leeds Playhouse co-production

Every town has its secrets. Are you prepared for yours to be revealed?

Why did the local mayor die such a terrible death?  Who poisoned the communion wine? Why do Mrs Atkinson’s humbugs taste so strangely delicious?

As darkness falls three shadowy figures steal into your town. Their old truck mysteriously transforms into a theatre – just the first bit of the evening’s trickery.

Stories of wickedness and dark deeds start to unfold…

Roll up, roll up, for a slice of theatre that you’ll never forget… no matter how hard you try!

Welcome to Dr Blood’s Old Travelling Show.

About the company

Imitating the dog apply their innovative story telling skills to create a deliciously dark tale of mischief and immorality. Drawing on horror movies and the traditions of carnival and medicine shows, Dr Blood and his motley crew tell a tale of the price paid for pursuing ambition, hypocrisy and greed. Set in a mythical ‘North’ and made for these strange times of lockdown, imitating the dog bring all their theatrical and technical acumen to this unique outdoor entertainment.
