Crimplene Millionaire by Boogaloo Stu

26th June 2014

From glittering TV stardom to the showbiz doldrums, 70s 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 nation's affection, Derek is making a comeback with Crimplene Millionaire, his pilot TV gameshow for the Retro Channel, finally marking his return to the small screen.

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 your hosts roll back the years to a pre-digital world of Mateus Rosé, Brut 33, fondue and butterscotch Angel Delight. If you didn't experience the decade first hand, prepare to be illuminated; and if you did, prepare to feel young again!

Can Derek win back our hearts, or will it be a dark night of the soul for light entertainment? What skeletons are lurking in Derek and Bev's walk-in-wardrobes and to what lengths have they gone to survive in the z-list celebrity wilderness?

Performed on a bold and unique hand painted board-game stage set, Crimplene Millionaire is prime-time edutainment, an interactive game and engaging social satire in one artful theatrical package.
