Tune in, Children of the 80s!

The Upside Down returns, as The Vaults presents award-winning, smash-hit parody musical Stranger Sings!

Following a sell-out run underground and extensive UK tour, Stranger Sings returns to Southwark Playhouse Borough for Christmas. This five-star sci-fi spoof is a wild, irreverent twist on the hit Netflix series – in all its hair-raising, blockbuster glory.

Take a trip with your favourite gang on a night of indulgent pop culture references, heavy synth, poor parents, dancing demogorgons and maybe – just maybe, you might find justice for Barb along the way.

Let the incredible original writing of Jonathan Hogue subvert the genre with this fearless parody, where there are too many mullets, a generous helping of fairy lights, and the 80s finally embraces feminism. So Hop(per) on your bike and grab a transmitter radio; because saving a friend is the answer to this neverending story… OVER AND OUT
