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

“The birth child of Monty Python and the league of gentlemen” «««« – Time Out “A blockbuster hour of cleverly scripted fast laughs and energetic comedy” «««« – The List

WESTERN?

SCI-FI?

You’ve seen Mafia?, you’re yet to see Sci-Fi?, what better show to see next than the one in the middle, Western? This time the Sleeping Trees find themselves slowly crisping under the sun of the Wild West, as gun slinger Harry Sudds takes on bulls, scorpions and many other animals largely found in America.

All good trilogies must come to an end, and Sleeping Trees boldly choose to end their movie trilogy with the third show in the series, 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.

With another live score performed by the handsome and ever mysterious Ben Hales, the Sleeping Trees stamp their fast, physical and surreal brand of comedy onto one of the most revered film genres of all time.

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!
