Being forty is like being a vampire: it’s bloody hell.
Suitable for Age 15 +
A hellscape stand-up comedy fever dream that descends into a full frontal face-off with the concept of ageing itself. ‘Degenerate is the Midsommar of stand up’ (Horror Obsessive) with Maria Creasey, ‘energetic and endlessly witty’ (Fringebiscuit), surveying the desolate landscape between desirability and death.
A battle cry for decaying defiantly. Because if you can’t beat ‘em bite ‘em.
Think ‘The Very Hungry Caterpillar’ meets David Lynch. Sort of.
‘Powerful and emotional’
‘Creasey’s stage presence is undeniable’
Theatre Full Stop
‘ …one of the most original works of art, in both horror and comedy, I have seen in a very long time.’
