Melmoth the Wanderer
Five chancers present a terrifying tale of temptation, torture and a traveller desperate to find someone to take over his pact and release him from immortality. Who will take on his curse? His only surviving relative? A stranger in the depths of despair? An innocent child raised on a desert island with no knowledge of the world? Or the clowns compelled to play out this extraordinary tale of temptation, desire and cannibalism who may well have bitten off more than they can chew... Comic surrealism meets shock horror in this series of ridiculous situations where innocent eccentrics struggle to survive. A random playground of the bizarre inspired by Saw, Psycho, Tim Burton and Fawlty Towers using projection, animation and squeaky toys.
