Panda Panda, by Larry Tremblay
Big Bunny has kidnapped Petal, the last panda on earth. She is to be held hostage by the Animal Liberation Front! At least, that's where the play begins. Because suddenly the theatre itself is held hostage! Scientist Annette Bonno and her "laugh gangsters" are on a mission to warn the audience and the world : a deadly mutant strain of genetically modified laughter is threatening the whole human race! So whatever you do... DON'T LAUGH!
Cast size: 1F/3M
"Filled with the essence of clowning and of that hyper-visual, physical humour that was the glory of silent films. And so we plunge into a universe à la Chaplin, Keaton, Mr. Bean et Looney Tunes... It's a pleasure to let ourselves sit back and be surprised."
Patrick Fleurant, Rénald Laurin
