The Grinning Man is a wonderfully weird and wickedly wild new musical that offers a vision of how an alternate history might have unfolded.
The king is dead, but who the hell cares? A strange new act has arrived at the fair in the centre of the capital, a grotesque oasis of entertainment. Soon everyone from the gutter-rats to the new queen has fallen for the hand-made freak Grinpayne and his hideously beautiful face. But who is he really? And how did he come to be so marked? A tale so tragic and so strange that not even he can guess how it will end.
Suitable for 12+
