simon Dawes

becomes a planet

By Alex Moggridge

Directed by Michael Lluberes

 

Born the size of a pea but blessed with a strange and haunting singing voice, Simon Dawes weaves his way through a world where healthy and beautiful is not enough, encountering an eccentric parade of family, friends, and lovers, discovering fame, obscurity, and maybe just a little bit of happiness along the way.

 

Blending fable, music hall panto and modern farce, "Simon Dawes" examines the nature of happiness and loss in unexpected ways.
