Interrobang's THE PITCHFORK DISNEY is a rare treat. An intriguing script, an exceptional cast, and terrific designs make for a fantastic show. It's easily one of the best I've recently seen. Bravo!

More Information


Ten years ago, something dreadful happened to Presley and Haley. Ever since, the grownup siblings have hid in their dead parents’ flat keeping the big bad world at bay on a diet of chocolate, drugs, fractured memory, and fantasy. But one night their feral isolation is threatened by the arrival of the sinister cockroach-munching Cosmo Disney and his mute mate Pitchfork Cavalier. The 1991 debut of Philip Ridley’s gothic fairytale is the stuff of legend sparking debate, horror, and a renaissance of British playwrighting. At its heart, THE PITCHFORK DISNEY is the story of two innocents, a modern day Hansel and Gretel, staring down a cruel, chaotic world in which money is all, fear sells, truth lies, and existence is survival of the sickest. 23 years after it came kicking and screaming into the world, ITP! Co-artistic director Jeffry Stanton takes on this contemporary classic revealing THE PITCHFORK DISNEY has finally come of age. Or perhaps our age has simply come to reflect Ridley’s prophetic nightmare.
