Jacksons Lane presents Lost in Translation Circus The Hogwallops
A CHAOTIC TALE OF A FAMILY OF MISFITS
Thrillingly spectacular circus skills blend seamlessly with physical comedy, clowning, juggling, theatrical storytelling and slapstick in this colourful, loud and funny dramatisation of the domestic adventures of a chaotic, dysfunctional family of misfits.
The Hogwallops family constantly bicker, scheme and play practical jokes on each other. Their crazy home resembles an adventure playground where the ordinary inevitably becomes extraordinary! Everyday activities take on extreme forms, simple tasks such as hanging out the washing become a clothes fight of swinging, flying bodies and fabric. Dinner time becomes a teasing game of animalistic juggling and a cooking lesson takes on dangerous proportions with household furniture stacked to the roof in a most precarious balanced fashion.
‘The Hogwallops is the best of the combination of theatre and circus…colourful, funny and suitable for all ages.’ ****
