The Grinning Man archiveAt the city fair, a grotesque oasis of entertainment, a strange new act has arrived. Soon everyone from the gutter-rats to the new queen has fallen for the hand-made freak Grinpayne and his hideously beautiful face. But who is he really? And how did he come to be so marked? Together with an old man, a blind girl and wolf he has a surreal story to tell. Dreams are lived, destinies entwined and the darkest desires are made monstrous flesh in a musical like no other. Based on The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo.
