Good old-fashioned sidesplitting fun for the whole family.

4 – 8 April

This multi-award winning family show has melted hearts around the world with its glorious brand of slapstick, acrobatics and total silliness.

Be swept up in the mayhem that is the larger-than-life ‘elegant buffoon’ Tom Flanagan, as one man’s life is flipped upside-down by the lonely, dust-covered world that surrounds him. In the style of Charlie Chaplin and Buster Keaton, our likeable, luckless hero struggles to get the upper hand, taking one step forward and two steps back until everything is … well… kaput.

We warmly welcome local wunderkind Tom Flanagan back to the Border with his inventive, joyous little show for the whole family. Kaput is good old-fashioned sidesplitting fun for kids, with plenty of naughty winks and nods for the grown ups.

Tom Flanagan’s silent-movie clowning in Kaput is pure delight.
