Containing more twists than a corkscrew, Corpse! was first staged in 1984, in London’s West End. Welcomed by The Daily Mail as ‘a wild, high camp comedy thriller, a play where anything can happen –and most of it does’, it began its Broadway run at the Helen Hayes Theatre in 1986. Fast forward to 2013 and the Therry Dramatic Society’s November production at The Arts Theatre, Adelaide.
