Big Boys Don’t Cry

Venue:
Skipton Town Hall, High St
Skipton, BD23 1AH

Presented by Opposable Thumb Theatre, Nordland Visual Theatre and the London International Mime Festival

Dik and Adam have made a new show. They had the brilliant idea of making a show about themselves, about being men. After gleefully digging beneath the surface, they soon realised that things can get very messy.

In a riot of colour, dance, clowns and puppets, Dik and Adam take you on a hysterical journey that is full of heart, but close to the bone.

Big Boys Don’t Cry, the latest production from the makers of Coulrophobia, an “endlessly watchable, sublimely entertaining double act” (Total Theatre), is an emotionally ridiculous story about manhood.

“a bold, brilliant and hysterical production which pulls no punches.” Bristol 24/7

“Two performers at the peak of their clowning powers” ***** The Wee Review, Edinburgh (on Opposable Thumb’s Coulrophobia)

“A fabulous and totally mad adventure” ***** Playstosee (on Opposable Thumb’s Coulrophobia)
