Hilarious, absurd and often magical, this show juxtaposes themes of loneliness and belonging with joy and exhilaration. Pathos, dark humour and Victorian aesthetics combine to create a wonderful and mysterious backdrop to a poetic and surreal journey.
Hilarious, absurd, often magical and above all, ridiculously silly.

"A gloriously silly hour of physical comedy and beautiful imagery performed with spellbinding precision. Unrestricted creativity firing on every cylinder" Younger Theatre

Presented by:
flabbergast Theatre

Flabbergast was set up to make uncompromising and exciting physical theatre drawing on the Bunraku style of puppetry and a belief that all theatre should be engaging and sweaty.
It asks the ultimate commitment mentally, vocally and physically from its actors in order to achieve an intensity of performance which is all too often lacking in theatre of the day. It believes that its creatives are its single greatest resource and as such endeavours to create theatre through an extensive and collaborative research and development process using performers from many disciplines including dance, acting and puppetry, the company hopes to develop existing texts and new devised pieces bringing an innovative and unpretentious approach to its work.
