The Terrible Infants

Are you sitting comfortably girls and boys? Good, then I’ll begin . . . Les Enfants Terribles’ award-winning theatrical banquet, The Terrible Infants, is a delirious blend of puppetry, live music, twisted fairy tales and physical theatre, populated by bizarre characters, such as Tumb, the boy who eats his mum, manky Mingus, little Tilly and her terrible tail and poor Thingummyboy, cursed with a face even his mother forgets. Storytelling has never been so wonderfully dark.
