The Gin Chronicles

Sunday 23rd July | 8.15pm
Auden Theatre view festival venue map »

It's England 1947. John Jobling and Doris Golightly (1940s amateur detectives) are called to investigate the threat of a London gin shortage, but as the case opens up all roads seem to lead north… to the bracing boulevards of Edinburgh. A train journey beckons, toast and marmalade is replaced by porridge and haggis (though not together), and the looming menace of a juniper crisis……..

Join The Misfits of London for the first adventure in their 5-star reviewed comedy series ‘The Gin Chronicles’ as our detectives search for missing gin magnate Cornelius Juniper.

Come and see this vintage comedy that combines “a dash of Paul Temple and just a soupcon of The Goons” (David McGill). Along the way you will meet some unique characters! 

Oh, and there’s a complimentary Gin & Tonic with each adult ticket! 

Running time 1hour 40min
