The Grinning Man musical announced for Oct 2016

Bristol Old Vic Theatre has announced the World Premiere production of new musical The Grinning Man.

It will be directed by Tom Morris (War Horse, Swallows and Amazons) and written by Carl Grose (Dead Dog in a Suitcase, Tristan and Yseult) with music by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler.

Based on The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo, whose most famous works include Les Miserables and The Hunchback of Notre Dame, it follows the story of a strange new act at the city Fair.

Soon everyone from the gutter-rats to the new queen has fallen for the hand-made freak Grinpayne and his hideously beautiful face. But who is he really? And how did he come to be so marked?

Together with an old man, a blind girl and a wolf, he has a surreal story to tell in this unique and deliciously dark musical.
