In a nutshell

Funny, surreal, moving and true. This wild night of fairytales for grown-ups is an extraordinary exploration of fate, destiny, power, and an horrific reality.

Go on…

A concentration camp seems an unlikely backdrop for a wild night of fairytales for grown-ups, but when the poet, journalist & bouffon, Robert Desnos, is captured by the Nazis for spying for the French Resistance, his response is to organise clandestine storytelling gatherings.

As the horror of the camps grows, so does the dark enchantment, surreal comedy and transformative power of the stories, until the only question that remains is what power does a clown in a concentration camp really have.

Funny, tragic, moving, and true The Remarkable Tale of Robert Desnos is an extraordinary exploration of countless other worlds and the power of the imagination to shape and affect reality.
