Important information:

This show contains references to kidnap.

Amongst the spires, spikes and sideburns of a 1970s university, a lonely Professor awaits a call. When he's chased by the ringing of every passing phone, an ominous voice sets a series of mysterious puzzles that stand between him and his missing daughter. Dodgy deans, grumbling groundskeepers and swotty students are suspects as the Professor capers across campus to uncover whodunnit and why.

Set to the sounds of 70s vinyl, multi-award winners Spies Like Us bring their explosively physical comedy-thriller about connection, forgiveness... and cryptic crosswords.
