Kid Carpet and Vic Llewellyn take you on a musical, magical, moving & comic journey through the minds of some of our planet’s most eccentric and creative individuals. A smash-hit success at the 2016 Edinburgh Fringe.

It tells the true story of an inmate in a Norwegian psychiatric institute who over 5 years built a castle on a remote headland. But ...where was he getting his bricks from?

The show spirals outwards from personal accounts into tales of other outsider artists who’ve been inspired to build gigantic extraordinary structures, alone, in secret, and without artistic validation from the real world.

Vic Llewellyn and Kid Carpet re-imagine these stories and tell them with visceral live music, dancing, projection & heart felt storytelling and chewed bread sculptures.

“It holds its audience, tenderly, in the palm of its hand, lifts us to the stars, then places us gently back down on earth, with a reminder that there’s always time to live better.” (Exeunt)

★★★★ The Fix ★★★★★ The British Theatre Guide “boisterous and innovative.” ★★★★Across the Arts “Hilarious, touching and poignant.”
