Dik and Adam are Clowns! They couldn’t fight their way out of a paper bag, let alone a surreal cardboard world. Why are they there and what are they supposed to be doing? They know something sinister is afoot (wearing really big shoes…) and they need to get out before it’s too late. Join them on a ridiculous, anarchic, often hysterical and sometimes terrifying quest for freedom.

A 75-minute show featuring slapstick, mime, puppetry and a LOT of cardboard.

Contains disappointing nudity and some language better suited to those aged 14+

“Masterful clown-play. The term ‘fear of clowns’ is lifted to a completely new level after the latest masterpiece from Pickled Image.”

“I haven’t laughed so hard since I saw Flåklypa Grand Prix (a Norwegian animated film) as a seven year old, and I almost got sad when it all was over.”
Even Biering-Strand

“Pickled Image’s two super clowns took it all out.

“Coulrophobia – fear of clowns” is one of the sickest things I have seen on a stage. It is an unrestrained display of theatrical madness I can promise you have never experienced before.”
Five on the dice
Kristian Rødvand, Rana Blad 14/2/15

“This really is a fabulous show, laugh out loud good, funny, inventive, full of craziness.” Theatre Voice
