Trafalgar Studios 1 , London, SW1A 2DY
  • The Grinning Man invites you to be seduced by the darkness this December, following its hugely successful premiere at Bristol Old Vic.

    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 musical reimagining of the classic novel by Victor Hugo (Les Misérables), 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.

    Coming to Trafalgar Studios from 6 December 2017, book The Grinning Man musical tickets today!
