About the event

Scotland's  silliest surgeon is back with his hit SELL-OUT SHOW 'Dr Bonk's  Macarbaret': an evening of drag, burlesque,  music, comedy, and medical  mayhem, starring the not-so-good doctor and an all-sorts assortment of  spooky performers! There'll be laughs and  scares galore as anything  goes in this madcap hour of madness!

From   the mind of critically acclaimed comedian Eliott Simpson comes this  new  nightmarish masterpiece! After a successful SOLD OUT run at the  2022  Edinburgh Horror Festival, Dr. Bonk has now set his sights on the   Banshee Labyrinth yet again, with a whole new host of horrors to play   with!

Join the undead plague Doctor, Dr. Bonk,  his unseen ghostly narrator, and his sinister selection of  spine-chilling acts!  This upcoming Macarbaret will feature the talents of Doctor Bonk ("Infectiously Funny" - The Indiependent), Hot Death Theatre ("Like being trapped in an intensely bleak magic eye painting" - Viv Gee), Ash Pryce ("Unique and original" - World Magic Review), Arianna Silver ("The perfect epitome of grey glamour and a powerful alternative performer" - Someone with great taste), and Ruth Hunter ("Big things predicted for this one" - The Skinny). They'll  make you laugh, cry, scream and laugh  again, often all at once. Expect  the unexpected, and come on in. The  Doctor will see you now!
