Coulrophobia by Pickled Image (UK)

Two clowns trapped in a cardboard world

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 (wearing really big shoes…) and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a ridiculous, anarchic, often hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for freedom.

A 75-minute show featuring slapstick, mime, puppetry and a LOT of cardboard.

Contains disappointing nudity and some language better suited to those aged 16+
