Wonderman

Gagglebabble in association with National Theatre Wales and Wales Millenium Centre Presents Wonderman

★★★★
The Scotsman

★★★★
The songs, written by Lucy Rivers and Daf James, are punchy and very catchy and are performed by an excellent cast of four, alongside a live band. Amy Leach’s direction is simple but very effective – it’s a fluid, non-stop journey through the mind of one man and his weird and wonderful stories.

Combining a sizzling hot score of original live music, macabre characters, soaring imaginings and thrilling twists and turns, injected with a wicked sense of dark humour. A celebration of the wonder of one of Britain’s best-loved storytellers for his centenary year. Prepare to expect the unexpected.
