NEWS: Les Enfants Terribles Hit Show The Terrible Infants to Head to Wilton’s Music Hall

Playing at the venue from the 27th September, the production will mark the 10th anniversary of the show – featuring new material. 

The production will include new creative material, while still capturing Les Enfants Terribles’ bold and innovative style.

This hugely popular show is formed of a collection of twisted short stories by Oliver Lansley and Sam Wyer, that bring to mind the likes of Roald Dahl and Tim Burton, performed using puppetry and live music.

With narration from Dame Judi Dench, The Terrible Infants first hit the stage in 2007 before appearing numerous times at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe and nationwide tours.

Oliver Lansley (Artistic Director) and James Seager (Producer) of Les Enfants Terribles said: “The Terrible Infants is a project which is very close to our hearts so we’re thrilled to be able to bring it back into the limelight for its tenth birthday. It’s always been at the back of our minds to revisit the show (audiences still talk to us about it all these years later!) and we’re delighted that the bewitching Wilton’s Music Hall will be its London home.”

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

The production is directed by Oliver Lansley and James Seager and features music by Tomas Gisby and Neil Townsend. The Terrible Infants features designs by Sam Wyer and costumes by Trish Wyer and Sally Higginson.

The Terrible Infants will play at the Wilton’s Music Hall from the 27th September until the 28th October. For more information and to book tickets visit: https://www.wiltons.org.uk/whatson/331-the-terrible-infants
