Bat Boy

“Tremendous fun… a stunning production…further cements Southwark Playhouse’s status as one of the city’s go-to venues for razor-sharp musical theatre”

Time Out

Ten years after the last known sighting, Bat Boy returned to sink his fangs into the London stage in a brand new production in The Large at Southwark Playhouse.

A strange bat-child is discovered in a dank cave in deepest, darkest West Virginia. The residents turn to the town veterinarian, Dr. Parker, in the hope that he will know what to do with the strange creature. Secrets, lies and a mysterious case of dead cows leave our Bat Boy at the mercy of this God-fearing community.
