The Grinning Man - YouTube | Thespie

A strange new act has arrived at the fairground. Who is Grinpayne and how did he get his hideous smile? Helped by an old man, a lone wolf and a blind girl, his story must be told. The epic tale of an abandoned child with a terrible secret. A disfigured youth who is desperate to hide and a sightless girl who longs to be discovered. Based on The Man Who Laughs by Victor Hugo and brought to life by director Tom Morris (War Horse), don't miss this digital revival, captured during its original run at Bristol Old Vic.
