Description

All Wear Bowlers

Created and Performed by Trey Lyford and Geoff Sobelle

Directed by Aleksandra Wolska

A dreamscape vaudeville where gravity refuses to behave.

Two silent film clowns take a wrong turn and find themselves trapped in a haunted theatre, where hard-boiled eggs play tricks on them and gravity refuses to behave. The poetic landscape of Beckett, the elegant absurdity of Magritte and the dysfunctional virtuosity of Laurel & Hardy collide to create a world of venomous ventriloquists and belligerent bowlers.
