Hilda + The Spectrum

A bizarre-clown-character-comedy-drag-love-story with lemons in it

Part clown show, part love story, part autobiography and devised at renowned clown school L’Ecole Philippe Gaulier, Hilda + The Spectrum is a surrealist play devised by Elf Lyons and Ryan Lane. It follows the meeting and relationship between two otherworldly outsiders – Mr X and Hildergarde – as they meet on a dilapidated allotment in Cricklewood. Do they know each other? What is in Mr X’s briefcase? Why is Hilda’s accent so peculiar? What is The Spectrum? How do they both know David Bowie? Using a concoction of mime, clown, improvisation and live music Hilda + The Spectrum is a bizarre, viciously funny offbeat piece of new writing with a soviet kitsch feel. Imagine The X-Men meets The Mighty Boosh – (this comparison is mainly because there is one really cool bit of stage combat in the play and one of the characters has telekinesis). Written & performed by Elf Lyons & Ryan Lane. The show is 50 minutes long without interval so latecomers are not permitted.
