Description

Jim Henson meets Oscar Wilde in this gay old romp through Victorian England that offers a modern interpretation of classic English farce – heightened energy, slapstick physicality, and outrageous characters in over-the-top situations – all performed by two actors and a menagerie of fully articulated mechanical puppets. Laced with lavish luxuries, face-slapping humour, and a bowl of soup that’s simply to die for, Lobster Bisque features new and innovative ways of storytelling and the incorporation of clown work to deliver gut-busting fun while engrossing the audience in a visual feast. It will leave you gagging for more.
