Four clowns. One clapper. One hundred legendary film moments. Sixty minutes and no words.
Acclaimed RADA physical theatre company be•wilder theatre presents Three’s a Crowd , a thrilling joy-ride of commedia dell’arte and a love letter to cinema.
Three’s a Crowd is an ensemble devised piece of physical theatre, combining elements of mime, comedy, slapstick and dance, presented by a travelling troupe of clowns. These four – yes, that’s four not three – hapless players have rolled in from across the seas to entertain with their attempts to perform one hundred recognisable cinematic moments in one hour. All these lowly clowns dream to do is share the magic and their love of the silver screen to audiences far and wide. Enamoured by the lasting images of ‘Singing in the Rain’, ‘King Kong’, ‘The Godfather’ and ‘Titanic’ to name but a few, they will dazzle, charm, and most likely fail, in their attempts to accomplish this impossible task. But this time might be different. Who knows? They certainly don’t. What they may lack in sophistication, they more than make up for in spirit, invention, and most importantly heart.
