Mime, magic, puppetry, Motown ... and the films of Patrick Swayze
Tape Face is a character with universal appeal. Delightful, wry, many-layered and hilarious, Sam Wills accesses an inner child in us all that must be fed.
Through simple, clever and charming humour aimed at satisfying that hunger, he has created an incredibly accessible and enjoyable show that comes to the Key Theatre in Peterborough on September 18 .
Drawing on a heritage that includes silent film, mime, magic, puppetry, Motown and the films of Patrick Swayze, Tape Face is a pensive, curious soul approaching every object and audience member as a potential friend – or plaything. Wills creates a world of possibilities where the only certainty is laughter.
Previous shows have seen him totally sell-out at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe for four years in a row. He has also had four sold-out UK tours, a smash hit run in London’s West End, and has become a critically acclaimed marvel around the world.
