The Tin Drum archiveOskar Matzerath, the son of a permissive bourgeois couple is born with a fully developed intellect. Outraged by the passivity of the German people regarding the unstoppable growth of Nazism, the decadence of his family, and the world around him, he decides he will take a stand against the adult world by refusing to grow up. On his third birthday, when given a tin drum he was promised at his birth, he decides to remain three years old for the next 18 years, using his drum as his means of protest. Often hailed as one of the greatest novels ever written, Gunter Grass' surreal post-war masterpiece has never been more prescient. Kneehigh will retell this extraordinary story of love, war and fizz powder as startling musical satire: part Baroque opera, part psychedelic white-out, part epic poem. A burlessque, a blitzkreig, a tidal wave about to break.
Performers Nandi Bhebhe, Les Bubb, Dom Coyote, Damon Daunno, Rina Fatania, Ross Hughes, Angela Hardie, Bettrys Jones, Patrycja Kujawska, Alex Lupo, Beverly Rudd, Ruth Wall, Sarah Wright.
