Les Enfants Terribles / Pins and Needles

'I took a sh*t on your food, then I vomited on it and then I stamped around in it with my little sticky feet. And all because I don't like you.' In a kill-or-be-killed fight for sanity, one man is determined to conquer his fear of flies, but as darkness falls, what is that ominous hum behind the door?

Featuring original music mixed live on stage.
