Les Enfants Terribles bring their multiple award-winning show, The Terrible Infants to the magical surroundings of Wiltons Music Hall for the first time.
Based upon a series of twisted tales, this fantastic spectacle blends puppetry, live music and story-telling into a highly sensory theatrical feast suitable for big kids and small grown-ups! Featuring narration from Dame Judi Dench.
Meet Tumb, the boy who eats his mum, Thingummyboy, with a face even his mother forgets, Little Linena, the material girl and of course little Tilly and her terrible tail. Roald Dahl meets Tim Burton in this hugely theatrical, funny, sad, silly, junk-filled, puppetry packed, dark, delicious, magical piece of performance.
This unforgettable 10th anniversary production follows the huge success of The Trench, The Vaudevillains and the Olivier Award-nominated Alice’s Adventures Underground.
From the creators of Boris & Sergey comes a one-hour, one-man show featuring puppetry, physical comedy and mime.
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 (with more than a little silliness thrown in).
Tatterdemalion is a one man show performed by Flabbergast founder and Amused Moose Laugh Off Finalist, Henry Maynard. Featuring puppetry, physical comedy, and mime, aaudiences are invited to join our hero for a silent expedition as they witness one man’s quest for a friend. Pathos, dark humour and Victorian aesthetics combine to create a wonderful and mysterious backdrop to a surreal and poetic journey with more than a little silliness thrown in.
