Two clowns trapped in a cardboard world

“Coulrophobia is one of the sickest things I have seen on a stage. It is an unrestrained display of theatrical madness I can promise you have never experienced before.”- Kristian Redvand, Five on the Dice

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. Arts by the Sea festival is delighted to welcome this unique show by the acclaimed Pickled Image, who are set to bemuse and surprise in equal measure. Expect a memorable, 75-minute show featuring slapstick, mime, puppetry and a LOT of cardboard.
