Pants on Fire's

"The whole thing is crammed full of ideas."

THREE WEEKS

 

"Pants on Fire is a company to watch, in every sense of the verb, always guaranteeing fresh ideas and high production qualities. Where others strive ineffectually, it succeeds...

...an intoxicating confection of theatrical styles that continually experiments and challenges,"

BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE

"A confident ensemble take on a variety of roles with relish and each turn is so deliciously detailed it's a pleasure to watch."

Pants on Fire's unique take on Carlo Collodi's orignal tale about a wooden fibber.

 

Setting the adventures in a 1950's sci-fi horror B-movie, with a barbershop dubstep mash-up soundtrack, man-size puppets, original live songs and flamboyantly lo-tech extravagant storytelling, all traces of Disney are obliterated in this gloriously dark account of the marionette with behavioural issues.
