Much to their (but no one else’s) surprise, Manchester based sketch wonders Gein’s Family Giftshop have been invited back on the airwaves for a third time to record three episodes of their wild adventures live at their alma mater Salford University. Anyone who has laid eyes on the P.E. kitted tightknit group of social misfits will know how wonderful their bleak as Dickens skits can be to see, and thankfully that razor sharp wit transfers just as well to the auditory sense too. Join Ed, Kath and Jim (plus silent member Kiri) on their terrible misadventures to get a glimpse of why they were nominated for best newcomer in 2014 and continue to gain critical acclaim for their razor sharp playlets and before they jet off to wow the crowds at the Fringe once more this August.
Wed 21 Jun, The Robert Powell Theatre, University of Salford, Allerton Building, Frederick Road, Salford M6 6PU. 6pm FREE www.tickettext.co.uk
