An angel crash-lands in Clapham. He is embraced by mercenary forces in the madness of metropolitan London, 2016. How long before he is corrupted by the devilish delights on offer?
It’s Pinocchio meets The Picture of Dorian Gray – with jazz hands!
This cartoonish comedy features a score crammed with upbeat songs aiming to prove that the devil doesn’t have all the best tunes.
DEVILISH! was inspired by John Ruskin’s remark that an angel appearing on earth would be shot on sight. H.G Wells wrote a novel called The Wonderful Visit based on this observation but now a new team of writers offer their take on this premise for the twenty-first century.
