Disgraced actor Garry Starr defies his critics by performing every style of theatre imaginable, thus saving the performing arts from extinction. Starr tears through genres with little regard for personal safety and even less regard for art.
Nothing is sacred during this ‘masterclass in mockery’ (London Evening Standard). From Classical to Physical Theatre, Burlesque to Butoh, Melodrama to Mask; even Cirque Nouveau and contemporary ‘Euro Theatre’ get the Garry Starr treatment.
Directed by Cal McCrystal (The Mighty Boosh, Spymonkey, Paddington 1 & 2)
