This is a masterclass in taking a topic that might send the most engaged student to sleep, and turns it into an hilarious, much talked of lesson in group devised work, comedy, slapstick, clowning and joyous theatre making!

Five flirtatious “French” performers meet you at the door. They bring you in, they show you to your seat, they flirt with you. Maybe they fall a little bit in love with you. Then they tell the story – with you.

Like a wild dress-up party, this show combines theatrical magic, twisted pop songs and explosive wit. The most charming performers you can hope to meet play a revolving repertoire of outrageous characters.

Created and performed by A Slightly Isolated Dog, this New Zealand theatre company delivers a frantic and hilarious mash-up in the style of Python meets The Boosh. Leave your inhibitions at the door and play.

The Trojan War was created with support from Creative New Zealand.
