Birmingham Hippodrome in association with Open Theatre Company have worked with staff and students from Queensbury Special School in Erdington to produce Queensbury Capers, a short silent ‘slapstick film’.
The 14 students aged 16-19 years, have been working with Emma Bennett a Slapstick practitioner and film maker James Reider to develop their understanding of and skill in slapstick comedy, one of the oldest forms of physical comedy. Workshops have also included physical, visual and non-verbal theatre.
Part of Hippodrome Plus, Queensbury Capers tells the story of two robbers and a mystery man plotting a big robbery using a bomb in a box – the other box contains an antique. With the boxes mixed up by two hapless students confusion rains down and the mystery man gets more than egg on his face!
