The Wonderheads: Grim and Fischer

WICA is pleased to present the Wonderheads Theatre performance of “Grim and Fischer”on the Michael Nutt Main Stage on Friday, November 15, at 7:30 P.M. Wonderheads Theatre is a multi-award winning physical theatre company specializing in mask performance and exquisite visual storytelling.

Death meets his match in Mrs. Fischer, a tenacious granny not ready to breathe her last. In this surreal work of imagination and whimsy, one woman’s fight for survival takes fantastica flight in a showdown with Death himself! “Grim and Fischer” takes its audience on a profound journey that is at turns both hilarious and heart-breaking.

Suitable for all ages and family friendly, “Grim and Fischer” is performed in full-face mask and a distinct style of storytelling, with a rich soundscape, timeless slapstick and masterful physical performances—a whimsical form rarely seen on North American stages. Audiences have compared it to watching a living cartoon, or ‘live-action Pixar’. And like a cartoon, the power of “Grim and Fischer” lies in its ability to step away from the sharpness of reality and offer a different lens though which to examine a deeper, darker universal struggle: our fear of death.

The WICA Family Series is pleased to offer world-class performances at affordable ticket prices. The WICA Family Series was created in 1999 with a goal to help families make the arts a priority in their lives, and to supplement arts opportunities for the students of South Whidbey. This series brings high-quality, low-cost family entertainment and cultural events to our community, as well as education outreach.
