The Boy With Tape On His Face serves up a Neapolitan ice cream of genres: mime with noise, stand-up with no talking, drama with no acting. Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, The Boy With Tape On His Face is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend - or plaything. "A deliciously skilful hour, some of the set pieces are simply joyous, sometimes mesmerising," says The Times. "Great vaudevillian routines reinvented and invested with real personality. Wills is the last word in silent comedy," adds The Guardian. The show is at various times slapstick, refreshing, inventive, sublime and lunatic, with Wills' time as an apprentice clown and his interest in traditional circus freak shows shining through.

 

About Duchess Theatre

The Duchess Theatre is one of the smallest in The West End, which is not entirely a bad thing. The seating is almost on top of the stage, creating an intense engagement between audience and actors of the kind usually reserved for the fringe. More about Duchess Theatre
