The Grinning Man at Trafalgar Studios
Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse) and Kneehigh writer Carl Grose present The Grinning Man, a magical reimagining of Victor Hugo’s classic novel – The Man Who Laughs.
Set in a fantastical world brought to life with the visually stunning puppetry of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers, The Grinning Man features “an outstanding score” (Sunday Times) by Tim Philips and Marc Teitler.
The Grinning Man runs from 5 December 2017 until 5 May 2018 at Trafalgar Studios.
A strange new act has arrived at the fairground.
Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Paraded as a freak, then celebrated as a star, only the love of a sightless girl can reveal his terrible secret.
Written by Carl Grose, with score by Tim Philips and Marc Teitler and directed by Tom Morris.
