“That’s Barry. His crime? He had the world’s largest illegal monkey collection. He only had one monkey, but it was very big.”

When Ian ‘accidently’ kills two of his co-workers he embarks on a journey of madness and even more deaths. With the help of colourful characters, two rather handsome actors and some questionably made puppets, Ian must confront a secret and violent criminal underworld that he never could have imagined…

“They’re not bad people. Everyone does a murder or two when they’re not thinking straight. That’s why they come here.”

Finding himself in a secret community for criminals who really, really (honestly, we swear) regret their wrongdoings and want to start a new life, Ian has to come to terms with his new neighbours and whatever strange and scary crimes they have committed. Among them Steve (murdering bin men), Ambrose (stole a Marathon bar back in the 70s), the delightful Mr & Mrs Gravy (organ harvesting) and the ever mysterious ‘Balloon Man.’ But as Ian slowly discovers the dark secrets that lie beneath this seemingly idyllic haven, it is up to him to do what must be done…

“If I’ve learned one thing in this short life, it’s that milk is our friend. Never forget that, Jim. Please.”

With a fresh, idiosyncratic mix of childlike puppetry, extreme violence and diabolically brilliant plotting (even if that is just us saying that, which it is) ‘Death and the Data Processor’ is set to both disturb and charm audiences.


‘Like Roald Dahl meets Brett Easton-Ellis.’ – What we would love this show to be described as.
