BIG BOYS DON’T CRY IS BACK FOR 2023!
Brought you by Opposable Thumb Theatre, Nordland Visual Theatre and the London International Mime Festival.
A couple of years ago, Dik and Adam set out to make a new show about themselves, about being men. When they started to dig beneath the surface, they realised that things can get a bit messy. As they dug deeper, into their relationships with their fathers and sons, things got very messy indeed.
In a riot of colour, dance, clowning and puppetry, Dik and Adam take you on a hysterical journey that is full of heart, but close to the bone.
Big Boys Don’t Cry, the latest production from the makers of Coulrophobia, an “endlessly watchable, sublimely entertaining double act” (Total Theatre), is a ridiculous story, filled with raw emotion, about fallible manhood.
