Tragical Life of Cheeseboy, The

A beautiful, dark and funny theatre show. Inside a magical traveling theatre tent, discover a storyteller who 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? And where has the tide gone? Edward Scissorhands meets Oedipus and the Little Prince. 'the Tragical Life of Cheeseboy (*****) is so achingly magical and charming, so full of whimsicality and merry eccentricity that when the reality of Cheeseboy's situation begins to strike home. . .those with iron self-control will just swallow very hard. the rest of us will try to forage quietly for a hankie. . . A marvel of exquisite theatre-craft' - the Herald, Scotland.
