Nelson Arts Festival presents BEARDS! BEARDS! BEARDS!
by Trick of the Light Theatre
‘Beatrix didn’t want a tiara. Beatrix wanted a Beard!’
From Charles Darwin to Abraham Lincoln, Karl Marx to Mr Twit, it is said that the secret to power and greatness is all in the size and shape of the beard.
Award-winning company, Trick of the Light Theatre (The Bookbinder, The Road That Wasn’t There), delivers a tale of one young girl’s increasingly inventive efforts to grow the world’s most magnificent beard. Join a madcap and hilarious musical romp as our plucky young heroine, armed with bubble bath and canned spaghetti, shakes up social rules and attempts to answer the questions that have puzzled mankind since the dawn of the beard.
