Scaled cheeseboy edit square 72dpi
Acclaimed locals Slingsby present a 10th anniversary season of this captivating international hit show! Suitable for adults and children 8+. In a travelling theatre tent, a storyteller shares the tale of a stranded boy from a lost planet of cheese. Gypsies take him under their wing but Cheeseboy is tugged this way and that by strange longings and stranger powers. With ingeniously simple lights, mirrors and projection and set to lush original music, The Tragical Life of Cheeseboy will transport you to a fantastic world. "This exquisitely performed piece is so enchanting... the show is visually and aurally transfixing" New York Post, USA, 2011. "★★★★★ achingly magical and charming, so full of whimsicality and merry eccentricity" The Herald, Scotland, 2009.
