Mount Baker Theatre Presents:

Wonderheads: Grim and Fischer

Mount Baker Theatre Special Event

The Grim Reaper meets his match in Mrs. Fischer, a stubborn senior whose will to live is a force to be reckoned with. Equal parts hilarious and touching, this award winning physical comedy by mask imagineers the WONDERHEADS is the story of a tenacious granny who comes face to face with the Grim Reaper himself and must put up the fight of her life to escape his definitive grip.

Grim and Fischer is performed in full-face mask, a form so magical you will forget your age and marvel in childlike delight. Wordless and whimsical, it has been described by audiences as watching a living cartoon, or live-action Pixar. The show has been touring the continent since 2009 and leaving sold out houses and delighted audiences in its wake. A profoundly fun blend of physical theatre, comedy and pathos, Grim and Fischer is an extraordinary experience you won’t soon forget.
