Ying Tong

Under pressure to write The Goon Show to end all Goon shows, Spike Milligan is planning to escape from a mental institution dressed only in his pyjamas. After applying to the British Museum to get his marbles back, he starts to lose his grip on reality and threatens to kill Eccles, the most famous Goon Character. Will his partners in Goon,Harry Secombe and Peter Sellers, be able to stop him?

Ying Tong is a hilarious and touching insight into the mind of comic genius Spike Milligan who was an inspiration for comedians from Monty Python to The League of Gentlemen.
