LOON by WONDERHEADS

“I’d give it more than five stars – I’d give it the moon” – CBC (5 Stars)

Acclaimed physical theatre company the WONDERHEADS bring you a love story that whisks a man to the moon and back! Francis, a lonely janitor who is plagued by isolation and tickled by whispers of childhood imagination, has hit rock bottom and discovers that he has nowhere to go...but up. And up. And up! But will plucking the moon from the sky bring him the love he is searching for?

ABOUT WONDERHEADS:
WONDERHEADS is a multi-award winning physical theatre company specializing in mask performance and exquisite visual storytelling. Their work is performed in full-face mask, a wordless form that mixes European larval mask traditions with character mask styles, resulting in a craft rarely seen on North American stages. Audiences have described the experience as watching a living cartoon, recalling the work of animators like Pixar and Warner Brothers. In this distinct style of storytelling, WONDERHEADS make it their business to step beyond words and ignite the imaginations and hearts of their every audience member.
LOON is recommended for ages 10 - adult.
