Acclaimed new musical The Grinning Man is playing at London's Trafalgar Studios, now booking until 14 April. Book tickets here from £25!
A strange new act has arrived at the fairground. Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Paraded as a freak, then celebrated as a star, only the love of a sightless girl can reveal his terrible secret.
From Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse) and Kneehigh writer Carl Grose, The Grinning Man is a magical reimagining of the classic novel by Victor Hugo (Les Misérables), featuring "an outstanding score" (Sunday Times) by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler, and set in a fantastical world brought to life with the visually stunning puppetry of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers.
The cast is led by Louis Maskell, in the title role of Grinpayne, and Julian Bleach, who plays Barkilphedro, a vengeful clown with a heart of lead. Macabre, magical and visually astonishing, this ultimately elating love story is a distinctive delight that barges through the gateway carved by the Nineties cult hit Shockheaded Peter with the full-blooded emotion of Les Misérables.
The Grinning Man invites you to be seduced by the darkness...
