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!
