Due to popular demand, last year’s sold out hit Arkenham Abbey is back!

M Award and Pick-of-the-Fringe winner Launch Pad Theatre Company brings back their sold out Halloween Spectacular Arkenham Abbey, a Batmanesque thriller that combines the best elements from the the most gothic Batman comics, and spins them into a live horror-comedy.

Set in Post Edwardian England in an Abbey-turned-sanatorium for the unethically psychotic, the inmates of Arkenham Abbey, meant to perform a play for the public, have instead taken over the asylum and threaten to kill all of the visitors and staff.

Written by David Radford (Tara Firm and the Lunar War Chronicles, Dracula-The Blood is the Life) and starring: Radford, Justin Carter (Son of Africville), Christina Patterson (Lieutenant Nun), Jared Gowen, and Graham Croft.  Directed by David Radford and Christina Patterson, with stunning costumes by Martha Burd. 

An homage to everything Batman, from the costumes, to the criminals, to a clever re-creation of all the characters themselves.

WARNING: Due to the close proximity of actors to audience, parents with children under 16 years old should be advised that the show does contain blackouts, screaming, and moments of extreme violence.  Not recommended for children.

Launch Pad is a multi-disciplinary, Victoria-based company that intricately crafts original, dymanic theatre, diverse in scale, subject and medium.
