There are some people who will argue that Die Hard is the greatest Christmas film ever. Then there are those who will, quite wrongly, disagree. In a clever move to blur the lines between action and Christmas, Richard Marsh’s Yippee Ki Yay – A Die Hard Parody was brilliantly made. It’s now a season to ditch those cringey Christmas Carols, Messiahs and Nutcrackers and see one of the most critically-acclaimed productions from last summer’s Edinburgh Fringe – a true Yuletide treat.
Yippee Ki Yay is a funny, festive, and affectionate tribute to the classic action film Die Hard. It is written by Richard Marsh, directed by Hal Chambers, and performed by Darrel Bailey. The US Tour is produced by James Seabright. In Yippee Ki Yay, when gunmen seize an LA skyscraper, off-duty policeman John McClane is the hostages’ only hope. This uplifting action romp (and unauthorized parody) pays affectionate tribute to the iconic 80s fan favorite, and is essential viewing for Hans Gruber superfans and newcomers alike.
This joyfully funny show premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2022 to critical and audience acclaim. It was even hailed as one of the “Picks of the Fringe” in The Stage. Now, the team is taking the production on a tour around the US and the UK, delighting both theatre fans and Die Hard fans.
