The Farmer and the Clown

Presented by Front Room

Home. You know where it is when you’re there.  

An old, hard-working farmer lives alone.

A baby clown bounces off a passing circus train in the middle of nowhere, now separated from family and friends.

Unsure what to do, the farmer takes the clown home.


Can a friendship span the generations? Can old dogs learn new tricks? Can the young clown find its way home?

The Farmer and The Clown is a story of an unexpected friendship for all ages, told through physical comedy and dance, and performed with an original live soundtrack by JOW.

“Great entertainment for 0-100 years. Makes you laugh and tugs at the heartstrings. ”

Flibbertigibbet Theatre create new visual and physical theatre to delight, entertain and provoke. “Exciting and inclusive” (Babble 2022)

Marla Frazee is a multiple award-winning American author and Illustrator. Her book, The Boss Baby was an animated hit for DreamWorks in 2017.

“Joyful, tender and triumphant, without a word spoken, this is storytelling at its finest” (Book Review, The Farmer and The Clown, The Washington Post).

After the performance, you are invited to stay for a craft session with Stevie, Flibbertigibbet’s Artistic Director. What does HOME mean to you? Come and create a little home of your own to decorate and take away.
