Sword equipped. Potions ready. High-speed internet connected.

Based on the hugely popular online game RuneScape, join Lance_054 (the first 53 were taken) on a quest where the audience choose what happens next! Whether you’re an experienced player or a total noob, Gigglemug Theatre present an interactive parody musical which will have the whole family laughing from start to finish.

RuneSical was one of 8 musicals selected to be part of MTFest 2022 at The Turbine Theatre. The show premiered in 2022 at the Gilded Balloon, marking Gigglemug Theatre’s return to the Edinburgh Fringe after 4 years. We made it onto both WhatsOnStage and The Crush Bar’s lists of the top musicals to see & The Stage, The List and Theatre Weekly’s pick of the Fringe!

We’re logging back on one final time, catch us at The Town & Gown Theatre, Cambridge on 15th April & Upstairs At The Gatehouse, London on 16th April for our final ever performances.
