Two clowns trapped in a cardboard world, a hysterical comedy from Opposable Thumb Theatre (Big Boys Don’t Cry).
Take your seat, relax but don’t get too comfortable. Coulrophobia (fear of clowns) is 80 minutes of brilliant slapstick, mime, puppetry, existential angst and big shoes.
Dik and Adam are Clowns! They couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone a surreal cardboard world. Why are they there and what are they supposed to be doing? They know something sinister is afoot and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for a more meaningful existence.
With enough subversive humour to please the most hardened cynic, Coulrophobia glides seamlessly from sinister to touching, from ridiculous to outright hilarious. A high energy, anarchic, roller coaster of a clown / puppet show that has been a sell-out hit at festivals in Portugal, Holland, Norway, Czech Republic, Germany, Spain, Switzerland, Sweden, Belgium, Romania, Finland and the UK.
