ABOUT THE WORK
The TigerFace Show is a Work In Progress. Having been through many stages of development, it has formalised it's self as a performance that can happen in studio theatres.
The most recent phase of it's development was an ACW funded R&D followed by Work In Progress FRINGE performances at The Other Room as part of their SPRING FRINGE season.
The TigerFace Show is a semi-autobiographical, partly improvised, comedy-performance piece about mental health and adulthood, that asks us to re-evaluate what it is we really want to be when we grow up.
Performed as a mad and frantic hour of physical comedy, the central character attempts to re-create the last ever episode of his old kid’s tv serial The TigerFace Show.
The performance quickly unfurls into an audience responsive, ragged-scream-party-piece, that’s one part misery, two parts joyful.

Having developed the work through The Bristol Old Vic’s Ferment scheme, with support from The Riverfront Theatre and funding from Arts Council Wales, the work premiered at The Other Room, Cardiff, in spring 2019 receiving critical acclaim.
