This charming piece of physical theatre performed entirely without dialogue is ideal for young audiences. The style has been described as ‘live-action Pixar.

A man. The moon. A most peculiar love story. The team behind Grim & Fischer returns with a love story that whisks a man to the moon and back! In their signature full-face mask style which has been described as “pure magic” by the CBC, the Wonderheads step into the life of a terribly lonely man to ask the question: can a man truly love the moon?

What the reviewers have this to say!

“The show is visual poetry” –The Snipe

“If Pixar ever decides to go into the theatre business, they better call Wonderheads first” –The Calgary Herald
