The Prophecy

Comedy trio Peepolykus assume the roles of minor characters in great works of fiction and derail the plots. A pair of runaway soldiers stumble across witches on a Scottish moor.

By Richard Katz and John Nicholson

In medieval Scotland, a pair of soldiers, fleeing their own regiment, come face-to-face with a trio of witches on a desolate moor. One of them receives a prophecy that he will become King of Scotland. It's a classic case of mistaken identity.

In this second series, the comedy troupe Peepolykus assume the roles of minor characters in great works of fiction and derail the plot through their hapless buffoonery.

Director, Sasha Yevtushenko.
