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!  Different every month!
