Description

This is the story of a humble spud Charlotte, who dreams of becoming a stand-up comedian. But how does a couch potato grow to become a golden wonder? Potatohead is 'totally silly but also sneakily smart' (ViewFromTheoutside.blog) with elements of kitsch cabaret and old-school entertainment. This original new writing blends surrealist comedy and traditional theatre for a highly entertaining and joyful performance. 'Potatohead is as gloriously bonkers as it sounds. Freddie Hayes, our solo performer and Spud puppeteer fully commits to her endeavour with an endearing self-awareness of just how ridiculous it all is.' (ViewFromTheOutside.blog).
