Double Double Act
A Unicorn production in association with Made In China
This town ain't big enough for the four of us.
- By Christopher Brett Bailey, Tim Cowbury and Jessica Latowicki
'A magnetic mix of
mayhem, slime and wild dancing.' The Guardian
'...so unfathomably, hilariously different that it’s almost hard to imagine how it was allowed to happen.' ★★★★ Time Out
Are children and adults sometimes the same? What does adulthood really mean? And what kind of things do we both find funny?
Made In China have created a show performed with 8-year-olds and adults that playfully explores these questions. Using the format of the comedy duo, an adult double act and child double act try to take control of the stage; they joke, mirror and test each other, they reverse roles and they subvert expectations.
With slapstick, humour and a lot of green slime, this clever and surprising performance offers us a chance to see the world through the others’ eyes.
