The Grinning ManTony award-winning Tom Morris (War Horse) directs the West End transfer of Bristol Old Vic's acclaimed staging of the tragicomic musical based on Victor Hugo's The Man Who Laughs. A romantic gothic musical love story, The Grinning Man is set in a fantastical world with a dark heart. It's brought to life by Kneehigh writer Carl Grose (Dead Dog in a Suitcase). The cast is led by Louis Maskell, who reprises the title role, and Julian Bleach, who plays Barkilphedro, a vengeful clown. Macabre, dealing with dark subject matter with some scenes of a sexual nature, it's also visually astonishing and an ultimately elating love story.

 

About Trafalgar Studios

The Trafalgar Studios are two venues housed within what was London's Whitehall Theatre. The building itself is Grade II listed, and is an excellent example of simple, unadorned Art Deco style. The interior, however, is spectacular, with complex, cubist designs and sweeping curves of moulding and ironwork. More about Trafalgar Studios
