Clockheart Boy (Dumbshow)

By | Published on Tuesday 9 August 2011

This tale of love, loss and enchantment captures both heart and imagination. A colourful cast brings the soul of ‘Clockheart Boy’ to an energetic stage, enticing a captivated audience. The ingenious use of eccentric props, coupled with the quiet lull of a pianist throughout, adds a touch of the fairytale. Comically animated scenes cater for a younger audience, whilst overarching themes of friendship and truth engage the more mature. Seamlessly swift between scenes, the youthful cast also schedule humorous interaction with the audience. This is a production that could easily compete with the world of Disney, and as a perfect show for all the family, it will most definitely warm the hearts of all ages.

C, 3-29 Aug (not 16), 4.25pm, £5.50- £11.50, fpp250.
