About The Mystery of the Raddlesham Mumps

After the windswept double funeral of his parents, 7-year-old Crispin (or Crispin de Quincy de Faversham Clumps to give him his full name) inherits his ancestral home – Raddlesham Mumps. He finds himself in a huge empty house with only an ancient butler for company. And when that butler, Kenilworth, begins to tell him about the bizarre and hilarious deaths of his deeply eccentric ancestors the story takes flight on darkly comic wings. The acclaimed Raddlesham Mumps mixes compelling story telling with a brilliant musical score by Arun Ghosh, oodles of theatricality and a touch of exquisite silliness. A ‘theatrical treat’ that's perfect for lovers of Harry Potter, Tim Burton, Lemony Snicket and The Brothers Grimm! Age Recommendation: 7+
