Follow the tale of Italian ice cream seller Jim and Alice who fall in love, strolling along the beach in a 1950’s whirl wind romance. However, all is not as sweet as it seems when their lives are turned upside down by the arrival of their first son Sam, born with an oyster shell shaped head! Based on the title story of The Melancholy Death of Oyster Boy by Tim Burton, this bittersweet tale reminds us of the delicacy of life and introduces us to a range of larger-than-life characters who are sure to entertain and delight. Oyster Boy is multi-award winning, international production mixing physical storytelling, clown, live singing, dance and puppetry.
