WINNER: BEST THEATRE – DUNEDIN FRINGE 2015
‘Beatrix didn’t want a tiara. Beatrix wanted a Beard!’
From Charles Darwin to Abraham Lincoln, Karl Marx to Mr Twit, it is said that the secret to power and greatness is all in the size and shape of the beard.
From award-winning company, Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder, The Road That Wasn’t There), comes a tale of one young girl’s increasingly inventive efforts to grow the world’s most magnificent beard. Armed with bubble bath and canned spaghetti, join a madcap and hilarious musical romp of physical comedy and clowning, as our plucky young heroine shakes up social rules and attempts to answer the questions that have puzzled mankind since the dawn of the beard.
Recommended for adults and children 7+
