Riddiford Street: Medical Comedy Drama Thingy...

Riddiford Street: Medical Comedy Drama Thingy....

Each night is a new episode building on the last. The audience gets the power to chose the major event of each show creating unknowns within the storylines. With characters, context and set evolving through out the season...why not come more than once?

This show is recommended for audiences 14 plus. Some adult content of course. Oh and this show is for fun people. Don't come if you are boring.
