It’s helter-skelter, roller coaster, death-defying, dangerous…life on the road is never straight forward for single dad, Joe Butler in this poignant, musical celebration of the ever-changing relationship between a father-and-son, street theatre double-act.
Using a unique blend of circus skills, original songs, live music and magical illusions, The Battling Butlers is also a story of the circle of life as the old performer makes way for the new. And it really is a family affair, presented by father and son, Simon Pullum and Lochlann Pickering, with original live music from Julian Gaskell.
Based in Penzance, in Cornwall, Bash Street Theatre has built an international reputation over the last 30 years, performing silent-comedy, street theatre shows throughout the UK, Europe and beyond. The show is suitable for family audiences, with a recommended age of 7 and above.
