The Pitchfork Disney
This show has now finished

Ridley’s modern classic sees Presley and Haley as orphaned and perpetually infantilised 28 year-olds, unable to leave their East London flat for ten years following their parents’ death. Existing on chocolate, barbiturates and stories they tell one another to escape the anxieties of ordinary life, their stories conjure Cosmo Disney, a perfect boy in a red jacket made of sweet wrappers, who promises Presley an escape and a new life. Cosmo is joined by his partner Pitchfork Cavalier to perform a show for the twins. What happens when you can’t tell the difference between dreams and reality?
