The Terrible Infants at Wilton's Music Hall

Thursday 21 September 2017

Off-West End - Shows

Les Enfants Terribles take their multiple award-winning show, The Terrible Infants, to Wiltons Music Hall for the first time from 27 September to 28 October 2017.

Les Enfants Terribles are taking their multiple award-winning show, The Terrible Infants to Wiltons Music Hall for the first time.

The show will play at Wilton's from 27 September to 28 October 2017.

Based upon a series of twisted tales, this fantastic spectacle blends puppetry, live music and story-telling into a highly sensory theatrical feast suitable for big kids and small grown-ups!

And it features narration from Dame Judi Dench.                                     

Meet Tumb, the boy who eats his mum, Thingummyboy, with a face even his mother forgets, Little Linena, the material girl and of course little Tilly and her terrible tail. Roald Dahl meets Tim Burton in this hugely theatrical, funny, sad, silly, junk-filled, puppetry packed, dark, delicious, magical piece of performance.

This 10th anniversary production follows the huge success of The Trench, The Vaudevillains and the Olivier Award-nominated Alice's Adventures Underground.

The Terrible Infants has toured internationally to Australia, Norway, Poland, Singapore, Malaysia, the UK and three Edinburgh Festivals.
