This enchanting show returns to the Fringe once more with its loveable characters, colourful staging and dark undertones. The Professor is lost to grief when his only daughter disappears and, together with his creations, looks everywhere for her. Many years later a boy with no heart washes up on the beach outside and, given a clockwork heart by the Professor, enables the household to finally live again.
With a live soundtrack and multifunctional set, all areas of the Professor's castle are represented as the characters busy themselves in the kitchen, study, rooftop and scary basement. The show is truly an ensemble piece and is performed with great energy and passion. Childlike rather than childish; I defy anyone to not find something to enjoy in this lively, thoughtful and imaginative production.
