becomes a planet
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.
Featuring original music by Jared Dembowski performed on musical saw by renowned musician Natalia Paruz.
