Yippee Ki Yay

"Whether you’re a Die Hard fan or not, it guarantees happy trails" ★★★★ The Guardian

Acclaimed retelling of classic film Die Hard from Richard Marsh - Fringe First-winner, London poetry slam champion, BBC Audio Drama Best Scripted Comedy Drama award-winner and New York cop (one of these is untrue). This joyfully funny show makes its London debut following rave reviews for its premiere at the Edinburgh Fringe, & ahead of an international tour.

When gunmen seize an LA skyscraper, off-duty policeman John McClane is the hostages’ only hope. This uplifting action romp (and unauthorised parody) pays affectionate tribute to the iconic 80s fan favourite. Essential viewing for Hans Gruber superfans and newcomers alike.

Content warning: divorce, foot trauma, German terrorists.

Please note that Darrel Bailey will be performing on Tue 29 Nov, Sun 4 Dec, Tue 6 Dec - Sun 11 Dec, Sat 17 Dec, Sat 24 Dec, Tue 27 Dec & Wed 28 Dec 3.00pm.
