More dastardly than Dracula, more fearful than Frankenstein and more silly than the Sphinx, the mother of all horror comedies, The Mummy, comes to Coventry!

From deepest, darkest, dangerous Egypt, a legendary curse is stirring back into life and we’re all going along for the outrageous and terrifying ride! This titillating tale of terror and intrigue spans thousands of years and will have you laughing, screaming, screaming with laughter and laughing with screaming in equal measure!

A respectable legal practitioner, a beautiful dark-eyed Cornish heiress, a 5,000 year-old man seeking an ancient love and the Tomb of the mystical Queen Tera all clash spectacularly in hilarious circumstances.

Jason Durr (Heartbeat) swaps being a bobby on the beat for being a legal eagle whilst Susie Amy has traded life as a Footballer’s Wife for something a little more refined but much, much scarier.

Witness the horrible and hilarious creeping curse unveil before your very eyes…

A note from the show’s Producers:

In a world beset with bad news and challenges to everyday life, The Mummy offers a daft antidote to all your woes, in a single evening of insane adventure and entertainment.

How can a show which spans five thousand years, has hundreds of characters represented by a cast of seven, and locations stretching from Pyramids on the Nile to the hidden lanes of Cornwall represented by one ingeniously compact set, be anything other than relentlessly SILLY?!

Add to this Jack Milner’s brilliantly comic take on Bram Stoker’s classic of horror fiction and you have all the ingredients for an evening of diverting comedy horror.

The Mummy is directed by Joe Harmston whose productions for The Agatha Christie Theatre Company (including the current Black Coffee with Robert Powell) have been delighting audiences in theatres across the UK for the last nine years.

It stars Jason Durr (Heartbeat), Denis Lill (Only Fools and Horses) and Susie Amy (Footballer’s Wives) as part of a multi-talented ensemble assembled to tackle this world premiere.

The Mummy is a relentlessly daft show, which fuses Jack Milner’s witty original script with the gothic horror of Bram Stoker’s classic tale of the doomed search for immortality via a cursed Egyptian Mummy. The tale has been the inspiration for scores of interpretations starring actors as varied as Brendan Fraser, Boris Karloff and Peter Cushing, but this is the first time, that we know of, that anyone has been insane enough to attempt a stage representation!

Although we are attempting to create an entirely new genre, audiences who have enjoyed The 39 Steps or The Woman in Black; who love a ripping good yarn told with lashings of theatrical magic by an ensemble cast of versatile actors, on an ingenious set created by master of clever sets Sean Cavanagh; who like their comedy fast-moving and gag-packed, should love The Mummy.
