Description

Wes Anderson meets Hitchcock meets spaghetti western in this multi award-winning, intercontinental, inter-genre, cinematic caper of accusations, accidents and accents. Roger, a Frenchman in 1960's New York, has followed the same routine for years, until a minor delay saves him from an explosion. Throwing his ordered world into chaos, Roger chases his would-be assassins around the globe. Raucously funny and endlessly inventive, this Lecoq-trained company delights and stuns with live original music and virtuosic acrobatics in this fast-paced, Offies-nominated whodunnit. 'Razor-sharp' ***** (Everything-Theatre.co.uk). 'Stunning' ***** (365Bristol.com). Winner: LET/Greenwich Award, 2020.

This was a fabulous show, by 5 high energy skilled performers, who held nothing back, in their quest to entertain. A great story, with laughs all the way, and amazing physical agility. I would watch these people again. I suggest you make the effort, too.

Brilliant! Inventive, funny, incredibly skillful physical theatre to tell a "spy story" with a human heart and a hundred twists and turns. I've been to over 20 shows in six days and this was absolutely the best. Note to company: I hope you've filmed it, there are so many moments to capture.
