The best puppetry since War Horse The Mail on Sunday.

Stellar storytelling. Triumphant

A dark-hearted Christmas treat The Daily Telegraph.

As satisfying and heart-wrenching as anything you might see on stage at the moment What's On Stage.

This stunning new British musical demands to be seen. I simply loved it The Times.

Following its hugely successful premiere at Bristol Old, the critically acclaimed new musical The Grinning Man has transferred to the West End and “demands to be seen” (The Times). 

From Tony Award-winning director Tom Morris (War Horse), Kneehigh writer Carl Grose and featuring “an outstanding score” (Sunday Times) by Tim Phillips and Marc Teitler, The Grinning Man is a magical reimagining of the classic novel by Victor Hugo (Les Misérables).

A strange new act has arrived at the fairground. Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Paraded as a freak, then celebrated as a star, only the love of a sightless girl can reveal his terrible secret.

Set in a fantastical world created by designer Jon Bausor (Bat Out of Hell), and brought to life with the “astonishing puppetry” (What’s on Stage) of Gyre & Gimble, the original War Horse puppeteers, The Grinning Man invites you to be seduced by the darkness at the Trafalgar Studios.
