Leading UK theatre company Told By an Idiot is responding to the coronavirus crisis by releasing one show a week from their recorded repertoire. This week is one of their great successes for families, younger audiences and anyone young in heart, GET HAPPY
And now you have an opportunity to see the show in the comfort of your own homes for free.
Enter a world of artfully controlled chaos.
There’s a mysterious bag that drops from a height.
Shoes have magical powers.
And the strangest egg sandwich is made in front of your eyes.
Physical comedy, live music, acrobatics, silly dancing and audience interaction all feature in this ‘madcap little gem’ (Time Out) – a show for kids and adults of all ages. Told by an Idiot has looked to the work of Charlie Chaplin, Dr Seuss and Pina Bausch to fashion an unexpected variety performance, bursting with quirky playfulness and off-the-wall humour.
The original production of GET HAPPY was commissioned by the Barbican London.
