The Last Baguette theatre company from Malmesbury are bringing their Greek mythology-themed outdoor family theatre show Pandora’s Box to venues in and around the South West this summer.
Written by Sunday Times award-winning playwright Tiff Woodsmith, Pandora’s Box is described as a gallop through Greek mythology 'featuring goofy gods, hilarious heroines & daft deities.'
A spokesperson for the theatre group, now based in Corsham, said: "Expect a plethora of costume changes, a pantheon of Gods and a prohibited peek into a pithos as The Last Baguette retell the preposterous and problematic story of Pandora.
"Bring a blanket and some cushions and enjoy some high quality silliness. A show for anyone aged 6 to 126 who’s ever asked why.
"So join the Baguettes as they lift the lid on this classic myth with physical comedy, visual storytelling, live music, un-Apollo-getically bad puns and lo-fi special effects."
The Last Baguette say they work to make entertaining, accessible and eccentric work for family audiences, and are company-in-residence at Pound Arts, Corsham.
The company was formed from a shared love of theatre, bakery and humour in Paris by graduates of the Philippe Gaulier and Jacques Lecoq schools in 2010.
The troupe tour festivals, arts centres & theatres across throughout the UK, and have performed in France, Switzerland and Canada.
Sidney Robb, Producer, said: “We make visual theatre, & believe in the power of fast paced physical comedy & silliness to talk about important issues of our times.”
