Are you local? You are if you know The League of Gentlemen, the award-winning team who burned the remote town of Royston Vasey into the psyche of a nation. In a tour de force that has been called “Monty Python meets Twin Peaks,” three actors bring an entire community of hilariously inbred characters to life. Once you’re hooked on The League of Gentlemen and Royston Vasey, you’ll never leave.
Welcome to Royston Vasey - Ben struggles to take in Auntie Val and Uncle Harvey’s incomprehensible house rules, while Martin poses a threat to the precious things in Tubbs and Edward’s Local Shop. At the local job center, Pauline is furious when someone lands an interview without her help. Taxi driver Babs makes middling progress through her sex change.
