A beautiful, dark and funny theatre show ideal for audiences aged 8+, families and theatregoers of all ages. Inside a magical travelling theatre tent, a storyteller shares an enchanting and timeless tale. Cheeseboy’s home planet has been reduced to a bubbling fondue. Where are his parents? How did he become marooned on Earth? A journey in turns wondrous and achingly familiar, with shades of Edward Scissorhands, Oedipus and The Little Prince. Set to lush original music by Quincy Grant, The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy will transport you to a fantastical world.
By Finegan Kruckemeyer, conceived by Andy Packer.
