British master of horror Clive Barker, creator of film franchises Hellraiser and Candyman, has created several theatrical works. His dark satire Crazyface is set for its Philadelphia premiere from BrainSpunk Theater at The Christ Church Neighborhood House Theater in August.
Crazyface traces the nomadic journey of Tyl Eulenspiegel (aka Crazyface) as he and his family make their way across Europe. When Tyl comes in possession of a special box that contains a magical substance, three spies are sent out to find him, even as his long-lost brother seeks to kill him. In the course of the satiric comedy, Tyl grows from legendary fool into a man.
Through his struggles from the absurdly funny to the terrorizingly painful, Barker shows us that the rich and mighty are not any more secure than those they lord over.
