Les Enfants Terribles presents
The Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie
UK Tour: February – April 2016
Roll up, roll up, for the most ‘magnifical’, ‘tremendible’ and ‘fantasticulous’ experience in town! After successful runs in Edinburgh and around the UK, Les Enfants Terribles bring The
Marvellous Imaginary Menagerie back for an exciting UK tour.
Les Enfants Terribles, the acclaimed, award-winning creators of The Terrible Infants, Alice’s Adventures Underground and The Trench, aim to delight big children and little adults alike with songs, tall tales and some very peculiar creatures.
Ever wanted to count a Decapus’s legs? Or wondered what a Whistling Pank eats? Would you like to catch a glimpse of the fabled ‘Massive Paw’, or lick a Tresillian Toad? Or perhaps see a cow that looks like Brian May? Then you’ve come to the right place! Dr Longitude and his team of ‘experts’ are here to guide you through a puppet-packed, ludicrously lyrical and magically musical tour of the Imaginary Menagerie’s finest exhibits.
Puppets, sing-alongs and wondrous stories for all the family; this brilliantly bonkers hour is one not to be missed ★★★★★ (British Theatre Guide).
Written by Anthony Spargo and Oliver Lansley, a published playwright who also works extensively in television co-creating/writing ITV2’s ‘FM’ and numerous other projects including ‘WHITES’ which was shown on BBC2 and starred Alan Davies. Lansley was named a ‘Broadcast Hotshot’ by Broadcast magazine and won the ‘Multi-talented’ award at Channel 4’s 4-Talent Awards. Director James Seager comments, I think the show succeeds in not patronising kids, which is important. It doesn’t talk down to them, and I believe that this is one of the reasons why it has a
huge fun appeal and a real joy
