A woman obsessed with death builds her own coffin but can’t be bothered with the instructions.
Two men come to clear Mrs Ardent's house but get more than they bargained for.
And the devil is alive and well...and living in Lewes.



Join us at the Cinema Museum in London for an exclusive screening of our take on the 7 Deadly Sins as, for the first time, we disappear down a cinematic rabbit hole. Mixing the mischievous with the macabre, the unflattering with the unsettling, this unique version of these warnings to humankind fuse laughter and pain in true Idiot style.

Bringing together 7 extraordinary emerging film makers and an Idiot ensemble of 7 performers (including co-founder Hayley Carmichael), along with Idiot collaborator and esteemed actor Edward Petherbridge, 7 Deadly Idiots continues our journey of creating the unexpected since 1993.
