MK Festival Fringe: Outdoor Theatre - Crimplene Millionaire


MK Festival Fringe presents:

Outdoor Theatre - Crimplene Millionaire

Sunday 20 July / 3.30 - 4pm / Free / Pre-booking essential via Eventbrite

Margaret Powell Square

From glittering TV stardom to the showbiz doldrums, 1970’s telly host Derek Daniels has been off our screens for quite a while, with only his glamorous assistant and increasingly frustrated wife Bev for company. In a bid to rekindle the nations affection, Derek is making a comeback with Crimplene Millionaire, his roaming TV gameshow for the new Retro Channel, marking his return to the small screen. But can Derek win back our hearts, or will it be a dark night of the soul for light entertainment? And what skeltons are lurking in Derek and Bev’s walk in wardrobes, and to what lengths have they gone to survive the z-list celebrity wilderness? 


Derek and Bev invite you to play a round of Crimplene Millionaire. Roll the dice and compete in the 1970s board game that style forgot as our hosts roll back the years to a pre-digital world of Mateus Rose and cheese fondue. If you didn’t experience it the first time round, prepare to be illuminated; and if you did, prepare to feel young again! Performed on a bold and unique board-game stage set, Crimplene Millionaire is an interactive game, prime-time edutainment and social satire in one artful theatrical package.
