Fresh from an acclaimed run at the Edinburgh Fringe in the summer, Camisado Club return to The Customs House with their hit black comedy, Send More Paper on Friday, September 5.

Having rehearsed the play at the Mill Dam venue in South Shields, the group of eight performing arts graduates - who formed the Club out of North Company, which is supported by Northern Stage - say they are delighted to be back to showcase this tale of joy, mischief, love and deceit.

Send More Paper relives the true tale of a group of housewives in Hungary who committed mass murder over the course of 15 years in the early 20th century.

The grisly story uses dark humour to follow the housewives who systematically poisoned their husbands, parents, children and anyone who got in their way.

The performance promises a “fast paced presentation of comedy, physical theatre, clowning and mime, and text” to tell the tale in a unique and amusing manner.

Customs House marketing, programming and events co-ordinator Sally Hoban said: “We saw this show earlier in the year and we knew we had to bring it to the venue.

“The group rehearsed here before going to Edinburgh and there was a real buzz about the play. It’s a Tarantino-esque show with a great cast.

“We’re always eager to support and celebrate new theatre and we’re delighted to see Camisado Club at The Customs House.”
