The Wee Review: Best of Family Shows
About The Show
Join the three delightful Clowns who make waiting at a bus stop a tragically complicated affair. They don’t know it yet, but Tropizo, Doa & Squiggle are on a journey to become best friends! But how do you make real friends in a modern world? Through loneliness, tumbles and laughter, they learn to cast aside the everyday distractions that stand in the way of what matters most.
Full of slapstick, acrobatics, and physical comedy, Better Together is an artful, intelligent, and hilarious piece . The show’s visual comedy and use of nonsensical language allows it to be understood by all, making it enjoyable for the whole family. Come along, and learn how three red noses are better than one!
Recommended for ages 4+
Squiggle can’t stop daydreaming at work. Doa loves animals, and is an aspiring trainer. Tropizo just wants to blow bubbles and make people happy. A click and a whistle knocks these Clowns back into line. Their expectations clipped to fit the system. They are trying to fit with the norm; Or trying to be individual within the norm; Or trying to defy the stereotype. Whatever they are trying, one thing is for certain; they cannot seem to win. With widespread Clown horror tainting their every move, Doa, Tropizo & Squiggle experience the prejudice of a society fed lies about the ‘other’.
A show about diversity and prejudice, for family audiences.
Recommended ages 7+
This show is currently in rehearsal, and is being supported by The Marlowe , Pegasus Theatre & Arts Council England.
All the joy and slapstick of our family clowning shows, but for grown ups. Suitable for those with a childish (and slightly naughty) sense of humour. Coming soon.
