The Elvis Dead announced for 4th November

Our November show is now on sale!

The Elvis Dead was the talk of Edinburgh 2017 – Cult classic horror movie Evil Dead 2 reinterpreted through the songs of Elvis and it’s coming to Group Therapy in November!

Elvis Aaron Presley is the quintessential rock star icon, with influence stretching across generations; Bruce Campbell is the quintessential B-movie horror icon, appearing with enough regularity to consider it habit, as Ash Williams in the Evil Dead movies. Bruce also once appeared as Elvis in the ‘soul-stealing mummy in a nursing home’ movie, Bubba Ho-Tep.


Rob Kemp loves all of these things, and (very occasionally) has been told that he bears a passing resemblance to Bruce Campbell (we’re not here to discuss the accuracy of this observation, just accept that it happened).

Every now and then, an idea strikes that seems extremely absurd, and yet at the same time bizarrely fitting.

With this being the case, the only logical thing to do is don a jumpsuit (blue and brown, naturally
) and sing your way through as much of the plot of Evil Dead 2 as you can in one hour.

‘A mind-bending, very funny and extraordinary performance – and you never stop laughing at the crazy juxtaposition of it all.’ ★★★★★ Beyond the Joke
‘This is the archetypal outsider hit: unlikely, made on a shoestring with love, and weirdly inspired.’ Guardian
‘A truly rollicking affair… an instant Fringe cult classic.’
★★★★ List
‘So filled with love and joy that only a deadite would fail to be entertained. Hail to the King.’

★★★★ Skinny
★★★★ Fest
