About the Play

The Goons' brand of sublime nonsense and complete weirdness has taken the airwaves of England by storm, and Spike Milligan, Peter Sellers, Harry Secombe and Wallace Greenslade are basking in the success of their cult radio show.

But the comedy machinery of The Goon Show is taking its toll. Spike's mind is starting to play tricks on him... What's he doing in an asylum? What are Bluebottle and Seagoon doing there? Why does the doctor look like Greenslade? And who are those little green guys?

Welcome to the mad world of Ying Tong - unleashing the revolutionary and chaotic silliness of The Goons at His Majesty’s Theatre to entertain you in time for the 2008 silly season!

A Sydney Theatre Company Production.
