A series of grisly black comedy vignettes at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe
Ivy and Morris are The Twins Macabre, two psychic siblings that come across like creepy Victorian children trapped in the modern world. Equally influenced by Hammer Horror and the Addams Family, they brilliantly inhabit their characters: Ivy is the ringleader while Morris is the obedient fool. Presenting a series of grisly vignettes, the stories of their own childhood are particularly inspired, hitting the magic sweet spot where they make you laugh even as your skin crawls.
