In a remarkable follow-up to the Canterbury Tales, ancient vampire Geoff Chaucer presents his new collection, accompanied by live music from his lobster-themed band, ‘the Crusty Asians’. Comedy, rap, electronic music & cutting-edge visuals combine to skewer & shish-kebab popular culture, politics, and prawns. Find out what happened when Oscar Wilde and Mike Tyson fell in love, and when WH Auden & Bojack Horseman bought a pair of Air Jordans from the drug lord Prince Harry Kapoor. A world premiere from naughty agent provocateur, Shane Solanki, featuring live classical Indian music from Harkiret Singh Bahra.
