The Girl with the Hurricane Hands (and other short tales of woe)

Thu 4th – Sun 28th Aug 2016


“Your Hurricane Hands turn my lucid light bleak, I cannot love you, sweet girl, for you're making me weak.”







Our differences define us, when we grow up more than ever. But can you imagine growing up with hurricanes instead of hands? Effortless verse combines with slick physical theatre in this performance for all ages.

The Girl with The Hurricane Hands (and other short tales of woe) is a collection of five rhyming short stories focusing on the birth, childhood and adolescence of a child with an absurdist "deformity", which is usually a result of a strange conception. In the case of the eponymous girl who is born with small hurricanes instead of hands, her sweet nature juxtaposes her tempestuous body, causing her endless strife and heartbreak.

The company of Bristol University undergraduates presents this exciting piece of theatre for all ages, in preparation for the Edinburgh Fringe Free Festival!
