One man’s fantastical and hilarious quest to unravel the occult secrets of a unique family ‘hairloom’.

After inheriting a 100-year old moustache, David Bramwell embarks on a ten-year odyssey to discover all he can about its former owner, a Victorian freakshow host called Ambrose Oddfellow. His quest draws him into the underbelly of Brighton – its séances, spiritual churches and a seedy basement club – where he unwittingly becomes the host of a modern-day freakshow. Coming to believe that his ‘hairloom’ is possessed, Bramwell joins a cult, dabbles with Amazonian psychedelics and comes close to losing the plot entirely. Can he solve the mystery before his sanity gives in?

 

This award-winning monologue is a supernatural coming-of-age story, an exploration into magic and the nature of reality, and an affectionate portrayal of England’s rich counterculture. It’s quite funny, too.
