A delightful comedy about monsters, horror and death.

Subhumans is a farcical action/horror comedy set during the Second World War. The crew of a British submarine start dying one by one as an unseen beast attacks and devours them. Will they be able to overcome their paranoia and incompetence long enough to work together and stop the creature? Will they discover the traitor in their midst in time?

A thrillingly silly new adventure from the makers of Mystery Radio Theatre, Incognito! and Denouement!

“A sublimely silly and frenetically farcical comedy…” – Peter Green, The Melbourne Observer

“… a surreal journey that only builds in ludicrousness. The script is witty and fresh, keeping the audience guessing and trying to understand the absurdities that take place – only to be surprised.”
– Lucinda Naughton, Theatre Travels
