    Brought to you by Opposable Thumb Theatre, Nordland Visual Theatre and the London International Mime Festival.

    Dik and Adam have made a new show. They had the brilliant idea of making a show about themselves, about being men. After gleefully digging beneath the surface, they soon realised that things can get very messy.

    In a riot of colour, dance, clowns and puppets, 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 an emotionally ridiculous story about manhood.
