Apologies if this post isn't allowed but I thought you guys might be interested in a new play by Robin French called Gilbert is Dead. Set in 1866, it is being staged at one of London's last Victorian music halls - Hoxton Hall.

Gilbert Shirley - a loyal spy of Queen Victoria - is sent on a mission to the Black Islands to recover the legendary ghost loris and in doing so, disprove Darwin's theory of natural selection. Gilbert is Dead is bringing stage fighting, Victorian paper-puppetry, taxidermy and top hats to one of London's most beautiful site-specific venues.
