A Butcher of Distinction

1 - 12 November 2022

I provided him with things money can’t buy. And now he’s left me the most priceless gift of all. His most precious possessions.

Two orphaned twins are forced out of the rural wilderness they know and into a bleak, brutal London that they don’t. Seeking refuge in a dank pub basement, they begin to plan their escape, only to find themselves locked in a nightmarish battle with a grieving stranger over their dead father’s sordid legacy. 

Hayes’ blisteringly-witty black comedy is set in a basement of a pub, so what better place to see it, than in a basement of a pub?
