Dik and Adam are clowns! They couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone a surreal cardboard world. Why are they there and what are they supposed to be doing? They know something sinister is afoot (wearing really big shoes…) and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a ridiculous, anarchic, often hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for freedom.

Bristol’s world-renowned puppet theatre makers Pickled Image reprise the internationally touring Coulrophobia, a high-speed rollercoaster of clowning and puppetry featuring slapstick, mime, and a LOT of cardboard.

The show has been a sell-out hit at puppet festivals in Portugal, Holland, Norway, Czech Republic as well as visiting Germany, Spain, Poland and Canada.

“Enough subversive humour to please the most cynical of theatre goers. Top class clowning,” said our five-star review.

March 30-Apr 4, 7.30pm plus Sat 2pm, £12. For more info, visit
