‘60 sublime minutes of exquisite madness.’ ★★★★ Guardian

Gaulier-trained clown Trygve Wakenshaw’s sell-out cult hit of last year’s Edinburgh fringe comes to London following sold-out seasons around the globe.

A delightfully strange physical comedy about an imaginary friend who makes imaginary friends who make imaginary enemies who make imaginary armies out of imaginary Scotsmen.

What will happen? Nobody knows. Not even the squid.
