What's on/Brighton Fringe 2022/Lachlan Werner: Voices of Evil

Ventriloquism as you’ve never seen before… a hilarious sell-out queer horror.


Lachy is a poof, and apparently a virgin. Brew is a small, squishy witch, and she has decided to sacrifice him. To help with his self esteem.

Together, they’ll bring your worst nightmares to life in a ceremony of paranormal tricks and treats.
But when the ritual releases a sinister entity with a lust for destruction, the virginal Lachy may never be the same…


This “incredibly versatile” (Everyday Mag) rising star presents a surprising, rebellious and ridiculous hour of occult frights, where demonic voices seem to come from every corner. Watch out, anyone could get puppeteered… by EVIL!

Packed with physical comedy, subversive improvisation and “a clear talent for his craft” (Steve Bennett, Chortle)


Lachlan Werner is a ventriloquist, clown and theatre-maker. A graduate of Ecole Philippe Gaulier and fresh favourite on the London cabaret/comedy circuit. He has toured solo shows internationally. His new show ‘Voices Of Evil’ sold out at The Pleasance as part of London Horror Festival 2021. He’s a founding member of the company, Pointy Finger.

This production is part of the new Culture ConneX initiative and supported by Brighton & Hove Pride’s Cultural Development Programme.
