THE OLD CURIOSITY SHOW
Future tour dates to be announced.
Amadan are back, scraping away the grease-paint with their fingernails to reveal The Old Curiosity Show. John Patrick Higgins’ new play sees a thread-bare troupe of troubadours wrestle with three Victorian melodramas, with the shabbiness of their surroundings and finally with each other.
Expect buffoonery, slapstick, innuendo and dark humour as this show about a show slowly unravels revealing the bare bones treading the bare boards.
