The Last Baguette theatre company are bringing their riotous and ridiculous outdoor family theatre show Pandora’s Box to venues around the UK this summer.
Written by Sunday Times award-winning playwright Tiff Woodsmith, Pandora’s Box is a gallop through Greek mythology featuring goofy gods, hilarious heroines & daft deities. Expect a plethora of costume changes, a pantheon of Gods and a prohibited peek into a pithos as The Last Baguette retell the preposterous and problematic story of Pandora.
Bring a blanket and some cushions and enjoy some high quality silliness. A show for anyone aged 6 to 126 who’s ever asked why.
The Last Baguette make entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences, and are company-in-residence at Pound Arts, Corsham.
The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools in 2010. They tour to festivals, arts centres & theatres across throughout the UK, and have performed in France, Switzerland and Canada.
“We make visual theatre, & believe in the power of fast paced physical comedy & silliness to talk about important issues of our times.” says Sidney Robb, producer. “We are really excited to be touring a fun family retelling of this Greek myth and bringing it to life for new audiences.”
So join the Baguettes as they lift the lid on this classic myth with physical comedy, visual storytelling, live music, un-Apollo-getically bad puns and lo-fi special effects.
