Toy Stories, or How Not to Make a Living as an Artist

Menagerie Theatre Company


Pleasance Courtyard


70 mins

16+ (Guideline)

From £8.00

A storytelling odyssey through art, contemporary politics and twentieth-century history, told in Chris's signature style: satirical stand-up meets art lecture-demonstration.

Toy Stories sees Chris living back in his childhood home, keeping busy during lockdown by making artworks out of Scalextric track and other toys from his youth.

When all around you is falling apart, can childhood toys provide some sort of grounding? When fake news abounds and politicians lie routinely, who's to tell Chris that his creations are just pretend?

A dazzling journey from Scalextric to Nazis!
