Classical clowning meets contemporary circus, to produce a charming piece of comedy about high society entertainment. At its peak sits The Pianist’s pianist. Impeccable in every aspect he glides graciously through life never placing a foot out of step. He is, in a word, perfection. Or at least… that’s what he thinks.
The Pianist is a solo comic contemporary work, centering on, in, under, and around one of the most magnificent of all musical instruments, the grand piano. Accompanying this elegant apparatus is the poised pianist himself.
Only he is so focused on impressing everyone that before he realises it, his show has transformed from the highbrow concert he hoped for, into a spectacularly amusing catastrophe. To salvage his dignity the pianist draws on his imagination and comes up with some rib-tickling and absurd results.
Make the most of this public holiday and bring the family to enjoy this fun-filled family show.
