Full press release
From the creators of the greatest vaudevillian double act ever conceived for the small stage - Boris & Sergey; comes a one man show, presented by the man behind puppetry's Balkan bad boys - Henry Maynard and featuring puppetry, physical comedy, and mime.
Audiences 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 clowning at the heart of this comedic piece of theatre, Henry has developed a touching, absurd and often magical show, which explores the themes of loneliness and belonging side by side with joy and exhilaration.
Henry is artistic director of Flabbergast Theatre. His multi award-winning hit shows include: Boris and Sergey's Vaudevillian Adventure and its follow-up Boris and Sergey's Perilous Escapade.
Flabbergast Theatre was set up to make uncompromising and exciting physical theatre drawing on the Bunraku style of puppetry, and on their belief that all theatre should be engaging and sweaty.
