    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.

    Original cast members Louis Maskell (Fiddler on the Roof), Sean Kingsley (Les Misérables, Billy Elliot) and Ewan Black (Sleeping Beauty, The Merchant of Venice) reprise their roles for the West End. The cast also includes Sanne den Besten (Les Misérables, Mamma Mia!), Mark Anderson (The Toxic Avenger), Julie Atherton (Avenue Q), Jim Kitson (Much Ado About Nothing), Sophia Mackay (The Bubbly Black Girl Sheds her Chameleon Skin) and Amanda Wilkin (Hamlet). 

    Featuring “an outstanding score” (Sunday Times) by Tim Phillips and Marc TeitlerThe Grinning Man is set in a fantastical world brought to life with the visually stunning puppetry of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers, and designer Jon Bausor (Bat Out of Hell).
