LUNATICS & ACTORS: A Four Clowns Production

 WORLD PREMIERE - April 29 - May 28, 2016

Enter the unsettling world of a 19th Century Parisian clinic where a strange experiment is about to unfold. YOU could become the next subject of the evening's scientific demonstration. Once the electro-shock therapy begins, there's no telling what will happen next...

Based on the real life obsessions of famed doctor, Duchenne du Boulogne, Lunatics & Actors takes its audience into the peculiar hinterland of emotional authenticity. The Four Clowns of this performance veer wildly from reason to insanity to Hamlet, and things are never far from becoming completely unhinged. Who is really mad after all – the lunatic or the actor?
