Mister Holgado | 24 Mar - 28 Apr
In a dark house in the dark city of Schwartzgarten there's something lurking in the shadows.
Conrad tells his parents that there's a tiger living on top of his wardrobe (who eats champagne truffles, no less!) but they don't believe him. When Conrad's parents suddenly welcome a mysterious stranger, Mister Holgado, into their home, Conrad suspects he's more of a threat than any tiger ever could be.
But parents always know best... don't they?
Mister Holgado is a hilariously horrifying treat for ages 8+.
