On demand: The Grinning Man

Watch online on bristololdvic.org.ukRecorded at Bristol Old Vic, Bristol, United Kingdom
Online until Friday 3 July 2020 18:00 (London time zone)

A strange new act has arrived at the fairground. Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Helped by an old man, a lone wolf and a blind girl, his story must be told.

The epic tale of an abandoned child with a terrible secret. A disfigured youth who is desperate to hide and a sightless girl who longs to be discovered. Let the darkness seduce you.

Following a triumphant premiere as part of our 250th Anniversary season, and it's acclaimed run at Trafalgar Studios in London's West End, we are delighted that The Grinning Man has returned, and this time we are bringing the fairground straight to your house.

Based on The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo and brought to life by director Tom Morris (Touching the Void) and writer Carl Grose (Dead Dog in a Suitcase), don't miss this digital revival, captured during its original Bristol run by TVPP, and featuring a sensational original score by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler and puppetry from Gyre & Gimble – the original puppeteers of War Horse!
