Get Happy: Told By An Idiot (Over 4s)Inventive London theatre company Told by an Idiot has taken inspiration from the work of Charlie Chaplin, Dr Seuss and Pina Bausch for Get Happy, a madcap, mischievous show for younger children aged 4 and over. A festive family outing, the play promises to take audiences on a voyage of discovery through mysterious noises and the strangest egg sandwich you've ever seen. Well known for their clever combining of performance, dance, music and visual comedy, a new show from Told by an Idiot is sure to be a treat.
