The Grinning Man
  • West End

A strange new act has arrived at the fairground.

Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Paraded as a freak, then celebrated as a star, only the love of a sightless girl can reveal his terrible secret.

From Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse) and Kneehigh writer Carl Grose, The Grinning Man is a magical reimagining of the classic novel by Victor Hugo (Les MisÚrables), featuring "an outstanding score" (Sunday Times) by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler, and set in a fantastical world brought to life with the visually stunning puppetry of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers.

Following its hugely successful premiere at Bristol Old Vic, The Grinning Man invites you to be seduced by the darkness from 05 December.
