A life-sized, gameshow version of the pen and paper classic:
Poised by an 8-foot gibbet a malevolent gameshow host, with a dodgy suit and soundtrack, invites you to post letters and solve a mystery phrase.
The fate of the condemned – a human head with a puppet body – is in the audiences hands.
L_ve Hangman is a macabre sideshow that can be cited indoors or outdoors, in fields or foyers, on streets or in venues. Self-contained and cyclical, with itʼs own brilliant sound- track, an audience of hundreds can enjoy playing and
watching over the course of a couple of hours.
The performance is staged as a dumb show with original tunes original theme tunes by kid carpet and the hostʼs full repertoire of quizzical facial expressions marking each stage of the game.
Enjoyed by adults and children alike, it is a simple game of high-stakes, perfect for passing crowds at festivals, entertain- ing audiences during an interlude, or as an act in a cabaret programme.
