It’s never too late to re-discover the unbridled joy of play! In this wordless, situational comedy, The Old Man, who lives alone, prepares to celebrate his birthday. To his surprise, the solitary festivities are interrupted when a playful Red Balloon floats into his apartment, shaking up his normal routine. The Balloon teases and delights the Old Man, reminding him the power of play, laughter, and friendship. Through spectacular physical comedy in the tradition of Charlie Chaplin, the two enjoy a surprising number of adventures! A tender, uplifting show for the little ones (and the big ones too). Sweet, inventive and packed with physical comedy, this play explores how, with a little imagination and acceptance, companionship is everywhere.

“...perfect for the youthful audience. At the end, the children were ecstatic!”

Twin City Arts

“As entertaining for adults as it is for children, with valuable lessons about loyalty and friendship…a delight!”
