"The birth child of Monty Python and The League of Gentleman” ★★★★ Time Out 

The hilarious multi-rolling, genre-splicing, physical comedy trio Sleeping Trees present a double bill of their smash hit shows Sci-Fi? & Mafia? See your favourite film genres as you’ve never seen them before in these surreal, fast paced performances complete with live musical scores.

Mafia?
In the first installment of their live movie trilogy, multi-award winning comedy trio Sleeping Trees deliver their version of every gangster film they’ve ever seen; Mafia? Expect casinos, operas and bloodshed, as the Banucci brothers find themselves in a situation stickier than most luxury cakes.

Sleeping Trees bring to life a world of crime and corruption in a way you have never seen before, complete with an unrelenting live score and the most mesmerising gangster kitten you’re ever likely to see.

Sci-Fi?
All good things must come to an end, and Sleeping Trees boldly choose to end tonight's double bill with Sci-Fi? At a time where ancient planet Plutopia rules the galaxy, farmer Charlie Sprog is dragged from his quiet home planet and given one simple mission: SAVE THE UNIVERSE FROM TOTAL DESTRUCTION.

Accompanied by an inter-cosmic and highly sensual musical score, the Sleeping Trees invite you to join them on a journey into the deep and infinite unknown. So strap on your helmets, jump into your spacesuits, complete the necessary six years of training required by NASA to fly into space and THEN, grab yourself a ticket!
