Dr Longitude’s Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie (Les Enfants Terribles)

By | Published on Wednesday 20 August 2014

A magnificent musical of massive proportions, this show has everything – fantastic songs, fabulous costumes and above all, fun! We follow the tale of Dr Longitude and his esteemed colleague on their quest to find weird and wonderful animals for his Imaginary Menagerie. There’s dancing, singing and even a bit of swimming as we encounter the fantastical beasts that he finds on his journey. Award-winning creators Les Enfants Terribles use expert puppetry and quirky costumes to bring the animals to life in front of your very eyes. There wasn’t a child in the audience that wasn’t squealing with delight. With just the right amount of audience participation, this big, bold, tongue-in-cheek comedy has got it all.

Pleasance Courtyard, until 25 Aug.
