Told By An Idiot – Get Happy 21

Saturday, August 21

21st – 22nd August: Performance times, 10.30, 1.30, 3.30 (40 Mins per performance)

Enter a world of artfully controlled chaos where a mysterious bag drops from a height and the strangest egg sandwich is made in front of your eyes. Showcasing new content created through workshops with local young people and their families, who knows what might happen! Physical comedy, live music, acrobatics, silly dancing and audience interaction all feature in this ‘madcap little gem’ (Time Out) – a family show for anyone who breathes.

Told by an Idiot is a critically-acclaimed touring theatre company, supported by Arts Council England, creating work which takes creative risks, tells universal stories and includes everyone. With equal value placed on performance and participation, Told by an Idiot pushes the boundaries of show business and removes barriers between theatre makers, participants and spectators. Our aim is for audiences to leave with a smile on their face and remember that Told by an Idiot put it there.

Tickets are free and the show is performed in a relaxed environment.

★★★★★ ‘Anarchically inclusive joy… I now believe in the transformative power of theatre’ – The Sunday Times ‘Consistently funny. Applying its usual fresh, playful physicality, Told by an Idiot has come up with a quirky, upbeat show for children, which lives up to its name’ – The Stage
